Chuck Matthews, Deputy Director, County of San Diego Health and Human Services Agency

Becoming a member of the North San Diego Business Chamber was a new venture for us; the first time a region of the County of San Diego's Health and Human Services Agency had officially joined a chamber of commerce. Since joining in January 2012, HHSA North County Regions has been able to become better aligned with the business community, using the NSD Business Chamber as a venue where we can share expertise, leverage resources and make valuable connections to engage businesses as partners in the health and well-being of our communities. And with the NSD Business Chamber becoming an official partner of the County's Live Well San Diego initiative in June 2013, we're able to elevate our partnership to the next level as together we strive for communities that are healthy, safe and thriving.

Lynn George, The Elizabeth Hospice

Serving as an active member of the US Accredited North San Diego Business Chamber has been an invaluable experience. The Chamber’s vision is to advise, advocate, and partner for and with the region’s businesses. Their personnel focus on keeping the membership up to date both locally and nationally to help improve industry business practices as well as provide networking, education, and committee opportunities throughout the day and evening to accommodate everyone’s schedules. We highly recommend North San Diego Business Chamber membership to any organization.

Ryan Stevens, Owner, Replica Printing

Replica Printing has been a long time NSD Business Chamber member (10+ years) and over the past couple years my business and I have seen a huge difference. No longer are we the passive members with our decal in the window occasionally attending mixers. We are now very active and have seen noticeable difference in new business directly from chamber members. In addition to the increased exposure my business has received, I have enjoyed the benefits of the Chairman's Circle and the relationships that have come from it. Put simply, our increased involvement has equaled increased sales. Thank you to the team that make up the NSD Business Chamber!

Karen & Eldon Dunn, Owners, Poway Transmissions

Connections! That’s what it’s all about. Person to person and business to business. We are proud to be a part of an organization that works to uplift their members with events and speakers and programs. Owning and managing a business is a tough challenge that is made easier by the organizations you belong to. We can’t imagine not having North San Diego Business Chamber in our marketing, advertising and management plan at Poway Transmissions.

Scot Sandstom, President, New Pointe Development

NSD Business Chamber supports New Pointe by engaging with our Local, State and Federal government officials and our politics to provide a business friendly environment where, as a small business owner, we do not have the time or resources to engage ourselves.

Adrienne Streeter, Owner, Streeter Printing

I thoroughly enjoy and appreciate the value of being a member of the North San Diego Business Chamber. The monthly mixers are a great venue for meeting people and I have made many business contacts that have turned into customers. Where else can you spend 2 hours and have the opportunity to meet so many potential clients? The breakfast seminars are also very beneficial and offer appropriate education that is timely and applicable to today’s business climate. I intend to remain a NSD Business Chamber member for years to come.

Jeb Bakke, Senior Vice President, CBRE

I was working with a building owner in North San Diego to secure a new tenant at his building. The tenant was having difficulties with the City of SD zoning department which was not only delaying the leasing process but was prohibiting a small business owner from opening a new office location where he wanted to be located. With one phone call into the chamber and the team was instrumental in helping the tenant navigate through the zoning issues within the City and ultimately successfully open their new business where they wanted to be. Not only was the new business thrilled with the time saving value-add but the owner, a member of the Chamber, was thrilled as well. It’s for the ability to effectively leverage these relationships the Chamber has established leading to positive solutions and their various other expertise that I’m proud to continue being a member of the North San Diego Business Chamber.
