By providing platforms for collaboration and education, the Chamber brings together varied industries and interests to fight for the region’s business community. Our members are empowered with the resources necessary to make an impact.
Business Alliance Groups
Business Alliance Groups are the Chamber’s popular lead generation and referral networks. These groups have helped hundreds of professionals gain a competitive advantage in the San Diego marketplace. Group members meet twice a month to collaborate on sales techniques, presentation skills, strategic partnerships, referral exchange, professional relationships, and more. Participation in these groups is an exclusive yet complimentary benefit of membership. For more information on Business Alliance Groups, contact (619) 544-1337 or BecomeAMember@sdchamber.org.
Growth Builder: A Worksculpt Series
“Business as unusual” is a thing of the past. Companies looking to reach their highest potential do so through evolution. Sometimes, it means taking the reins of your growth trajectory and looking at your business through a new lens. Consider: What markets have the highest potential for growth? Who is your A-team and how can you best manage them? What mistakes could actually be harming your business? How does your company adapt when faced with changes?
The Chamber’s new Worksculpt Series is a three-month interactive program that will guide you through proven techniques and technologies to develop your next growth business. You’ll discover a simpler, faster way to generate lasting growth for your company. Plus, you’ll get constructive feedback from collaborating with other participants and get guidance from experts as you build out your business.
The series will consist of six virtual sessions, twice a month on Thursdays over three months.
Each session will start at 3 PM and last 1.5 hours. They will be held on the following dates:
- May 6th, 2021

There is a non-compete aspect to this program. This program is designed for business owners, C-level or executive level leadership, managers interested in finding new ways to create value for their company. Class is limited to 15 individuals and consistent attendance is required.
