Progress Seminar 

The Progress Seminar has been bringing together Business, Government, and Community Leaders for over 48 years. This program is unique to San Mateo County and remains as a testament to the business and community leaders who recognize the importance of working together to collaborate and solve key community issues facing our counties and state.

The Progress Seminar continues to grow and evolve as it has from the beginning.  It has become an increasingly vital venue used to focus on the most current issues facing Peninsula communities.  The collaboration that occurs each year at this event, is proof of how business and public policy can shape the future of those communities when they work together.

Our Progress Seminar is an annual event sponsored by the Redwood City – San Mateo County Chamber of Commerce. The content and speakers are planned by an expert group of planning committee members led by Progress Seminar Co-Chairs, Assemblymember Kevin Mullin, San Mateo County Supervisor Carole Groom, and President and CEO of SAMCEDA, Rosanne Foust.
