The manufacturing, industrial and technology sectors in Hayward are certainly a vital part of our business growth and prosperity. These companies provide thousands of jobs to area residents, and they endlessly support charities and events in the community. As the business advocate in Hayward, the Chamber will aggressively protect this sector and by developing the MITS initiative, offers a Hayward specific focus on issues and concerns impacting MITS businesses. Accordingly, the Chamber’s advocacy through its’ Government Relations Council and Good Government Now! (GGN!) programs may be deployed to address any concerns. There is strength in our numbers!

Fittingly, MITS ensures that business interests are being supported and this segment of the business community is recognized for the positive impact it has on our local economy. MITS meets every other month, allowing manufacturers to focus on their operations while the Chamber works to assist with removing impediments that could hinder their productivity and growth.

Simply stated, MITS is a forum to discuss industry specific issues pertaining to environmental, regulatory, workforce development and other issues (or opportunities) being experienced by our members.. In addition, MITS serves as a chance for our larger companies to network with each other, as well as presenting a unified front to regulatory issues impacting the costs of doing business. The focus of MITS will be:

  • Collaborative approach in sharing best practices in the regulatory space
  • Student Internship through Chabot College and CSU East Bay
  • Updates on Government, CUPA, Stormwater, Air Quality, Energy, OSHA, HR and other areas of common concern amongst our larger members of the Chamber.
  • Meets at different industrial locations every month.
  • Celebrate and recognize new and expanding businesses with an Annual BBQ
