About us: By actively engaging public-private stakeholder interactions, we achieve dramatic outcomes by building relationships, sharing top priority issues with a unified message. We empower subject area experts within the organization’s membership to impact outcomes on public policy that directly affect our quality of life and cost of doing business.  

Our goal: to engage in concerted strategic advocacy efforts to build relationships to positively impact public policy decisions to the benefit of the Silicon Valley Leadership Group’s legislative and regulatory agenda.

Our mission: David Packard of Hewlett Packard was known to say, “Our job is not to sit on the sidelines and cheer nor jeer, our job is to get into the game and move the ball forward.” Silicon Valley has long been known for its collaborative, “can-do” civic spirit. This spirit depends on our ability to deliver an effective message and succeed collectively with our community and public leaders in city hall, Sacramento, and Washington, D.C.
