Champions Program

Become a Champion of Our Community

Would you like to join other community leaders in advocating for our region, meeting with prospective companies, and connecting with elected officials?

What is a Certified Champion?

Certified Champions are Greater Sacramento investors who have taken initiative by immersing themselves in concrete knowledge that supports the Greater Sacramento agenda, and who regularly act as ambassadors within their spheres of influence to disseminate this knowledge.

Why Become Certified?

Greater Sacramento’s community is always welcome to advocate for the region. However, for participation in mission-critical opportunities, we need high-energy advocates who can confidently lead a fact-driven conversation. The Certified Champions Program certifies you for these opportunities.

How Do I Become Certified?

Certification can be obtained at your own pace. It requires completion of 8 hours of courses, a brief exam, and annual participation in 4 Greater Sacramento events. Champions will receive a certificate, official pin, and exposure on the Greater Sacramento website. The Certified Champion Program is a special opportunity for Greater Sacramento investors at, or above, an annual investment level of $2,500.

Champions Play Critical Roles In

Welcome Receptions and Tours

Serve on host committees for welcome receptions and familiarization tours with prospective companies to provide expert insight into the Greater Sacramento Area’s economic competitiveness.

Conversations with the Community Events

Keep connected with the region’s continually evolving competitive environment by connecting with other leaders through biannual Conversations with the Community events.

Competitiveness Forums and Workshops

Take a leading role at competitiveness forums and workshops organized throughout the year by Greater Sacramento to both support our mission and position yourself as a thought leader.

Greater Engagement

Advocate at Greater Sacramento press conferences, groundbreaking events, road shows, sales trips, and one-on-one briefings to policy makers. As a recognized expert in regional economic issues, you will have the option to liaise with a local and/or state legislator on economic development initiatives and partnerships.

Through this program, Greater Sacramento will certify a limited group of leaders to act as advocates for the six-county Greater Sacramento region. Upon completion, Certified Champions will have the actionable skills and knowledge needed to confidently promote our market, build community agendas, and move our economy forward.
