CalChamber Capitol Summit Registration Opens


Registration is now open for the California Chamber of Commerce 2016 Capitol Summit, which will be held May 17–18 in Sacramento.

Attendees will hear from political insiders and CalChamber policy advocates who will address national campaigns and state policy issues.

The agenda includes a straight talk from CalChamber President and CEO Allan Zaremberg about the many initiatives that will be jostling for voters’ attention in California.

The special guest speaker will be national pollster and strategic consultant Dave Sackett, founding partner of The Tarrance Group. He has an extensive background in campaign strategy, political media and message development, and demographic targeting.

Following lunch, former Assembly Republican Leader Mike Villines, Villines Group LLC, will moderate as CalChamber policy advocates provide updates on the status of major policy issues.

Host Reception/Breakfast

Following the Capitol Summit, attendees are invited to attend the Sacramento Host Reception, an event co-sponsored by the CalChamber and the Sacramento Host Committee to provide networking opportunities for business leaders from all industries in California to discuss key issues facing the state.

The reception is a prelude to the Sacramento Host Breakfast the following morning, May 18. The Host Breakfast provides a venue at which California’s top industry and government leaders can meet, socialize and discuss the contemporary issues facing businesses, the economy and government.

Traditionally, the Governor of California and the chair of the CalChamber Board of Directors speak on issues facing employers in California. Leaders from business, agriculture, the administration, education, the military and legislators from throughout the state are invited to join the discussion.


Registration for the Capitol Summit, Host Reception and Breakfast is $60. Space is limited. The registration deadline is May 6.
