AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM
THE SAN CARLOS CHAMBER OF COMMERCE

Dear Fellow Community Member,

We hope that you and your family remain safe during these unprecedented times.  The COVID-19 crisis and pandemic-induced economic recession have been devastating to San Carlos businesses of all sizes.  Every business owner is making difficult decisions, and many are being forced to pivot in order to survive, pay employees, pay vendors, and make rent.

The San Carlos Chamber of Commerce is no different and we are excited to announce that the Board of Directors and the City of San Carlos both enthusiastically approved a merger with the Redwood City/San Mateo County Chamber of Commerce to ensure the businesses of all sizes emerge stronger than ever on the other side of this crisis.

The San Carlos Chamber is an event-driven organization that relies heavily on revenue and sponsorships from events like the Art & Wine Faire, Farmer’s Market, and Fall/Winter Wine Stroll.  Membership dues are our lifeblood, but not enough to keep the doors open when all events have been cancelled and there is no certainty they will be allowed in 2021 due to COVID-19.

A partnership with Redwood City just makes sense and feels right.  Our communities have always supported each other by shopping, dining, and visiting back and forth.  Redwood City operates San Carlos’ Fire Department, our high school students attend the same school district, and the executive staff at both chambers work very well together.

Of the various options evaluated by our board, including complete closure, merging with Redwood City ensures uninterrupted support for small businesses, advocacy for good public policy, economic development activities to attract new companies and good jobs, and focus on helping members survive today’s crisis and emerge stronger than ever.  We also have the following assurances:

  • The 72-year history and identity of the San Carlos Chamber will continue through a dedicated San Carlos steering committee
  • The Chamber events that make San Carlos special will continue when safe

The Chamber stands by our members and the San Carlos community to assist in any way that we can! We continue to work hard exploring opportunities to help support our members during these fragile times. Visit our website and social media pages for business support and up-to-date informational links about COVID-19 and available financial assistance opportunities.  We're also excited that the 2020-2021 Community Guide and Business Directory is available online, in which the website address of every Member is clickable.

Meanwhile, look for the re-opening of the San Carlos Farmer’s Market Sunday, September 6, 10am-2pm, at our new location at Bayport and Varian!

Please know that our decision for the future of the Chamber did not come lightly, nor without emotion.  Let us know if you have any questions, suggestions, or just want to chat as we transition to this new arrangement.

It is our passion to provide on-going direct support to our valued Members and the Community, and, with your help, we will always be here for you.  Should you have any questions, please email us at office@sancarloschamber.org or amy@redwoodcitychamber.com.

Your Dedicated Chamber Staff and Chamber Board,

Tom Davids San Carlos Chamber of Commerce CEO

Wendy Schettino San Carlos Chamber of Commerce COO

Jason Mansfield San Carlos Chamber of Commerce President

Amy Buckmaster Redwood City – San Mateo County Chamber of Commerce CEO

Mario Rendon Redwood City – San Mateo County Chamber of Commerce Chair of the Board
