148th Anniversary Celebration

February 6, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Event Navigation

As San Diego’s largest business networking opportunity of the year, the Anniversary Celebration is the can’t miss event for anyone wanting to make connections, build relationships, and learn something new. This annual event brings together over 1,000 of San Diego’s business executives, community leaders, and elected officials who share the same interest: making San Diego the best place in California to do business.

This year, our program will dig into the evolving workforce and how we can maximize the #OpportunityatWork with featured speaker U.S. Marine Corps Captain Janessa Goldbeck. CAPT Goldbeck will share her insight on how generational, gender and other social differences are shifting perspectives for what our future workforce will look like.

CAPT Goldbeck is a San Diego native and currently serves as Protocol Officer at Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego. She earned her commission as a Combat Engineer Officer in the Marine Corps, an organization that is less than 9 percent female, and was one of the first women to volunteer to attend combat arms training that had previously been closed to women. She also acquired the secondary military occupational specialty of Civil Affairs Officer and was the class honor graduate. Before earning her commission in the Marines, CAPT Goldbeck worked on communications and advocacy campaigns focusing on the intersection between national security, international development, human rights, and technology. She spent time on Capitol Hill, in Africa, and at the Pentagon.

We will also honor the following award recipients who have spearheaded efforts in creating a more vibrant and prosperous San Diego:

Herb Klein Spirit of San Diego Award:
Mike Murphy, Sharp HealthCare


Moving San Diego Forward Award:
Friends of SDSU
