Regional Partners: Fresno Business Council and California Partnership for the San Joaquin Valley

 

The Fresno Business Council has evolved into a community stewardship organization. We tackle complex, chronic challenges requiring the skills of a CEO. The members apply their entrepreneurial acumen to community problems and build networks to leverage resources across sectors. As civic entrepreneurs, they have embraced the responsibilities of citizenship and applied their highest-level skills in the service of their community.Committed to acting in accordance with the ten Community Values, our contract for behavior in the civic sector, members have earned the trust necessary to work effectively with leaders in other sectors and the emerging leaders of younger generations. Sustainability is a priority focus as the organization reaches its fifteenth year.

Set in motion by an executive order in June 2005, the California Partnership for the San Joaquin Valley is an unprecedented public-private partnership led by a board of private and public sector leaers from each of the eight Valley counties and ten cabinet secretaries. The Partnership is addressing the challenges of the region by implementing measurable actions on six major initiatives to improve the region’s economic vitality and quality of life for the 3.9 million residents who call the San Joaquin Valley home.

Counties represented: Fresno, Tulare, Kern, Merced, Stanislaus, San Joaquin, Kings, Madera
