Davis Chamber of Commerce joins Cool Davis
The Davis Chamber of Commerce, with a membership of over 700 local businesses, is the newest Cool Davis Initiative Partner. The Chamber works to promote, support, and advocate for the general economic vitality of its membership and the quality of life for the community. It helps create better connections between businesses, offers advertising opportunities to its members, and organizes a number of annual events enjoyed by the Davis community.
Recently, at its Annual Business-of-the-Year Luncheon, the Chamber recognized Cool Davis Initiative partner, Yolo Federal Credit Union as the Sixteenth Annual Bill Streng Business of the Year for its qualities of excellence, service, innovation and creativity. Yolo Federal Credit Union recently opened its new energy efficient LEED certified Building on what was a former “brownfield site” in downtown Davis.
With regard to the Chamber of Commerce’s achievements, Chief Executive Officer Kemble Pope said, “The Chamber is particularly proud of its efforts to help create DSIDE (Designing a Sustainable and Innovative Davis Economy) to organize the City’s 100 year celebration, and its collaboration with UC Davis.” He noted that the Chamber’s future plans include finding ways to attract clean and green technology jobs to Davis, collaboration on the surface water project for the City, and promoting water conservation. Kemble invites everyone to visit the Chamber’s website (www.davischamber.com) to learn more about the organization.
Cool Davis is a coalition of citizens, the City of Davis, and community organizations working to empower our community to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
