Economic Vitality Council

The Chamber’s Economic Vitality Council seeks to empower Irvine’s capacity to lead and compete in a global economy. We will help energize the start-up eco-system, improve business retention, attract new businesses, help businesses grow and expand, contribute to talent attraction and workforce development, facilitate trade and export opportunities and cultivate a collaborative environment in which assets and resources may be optimally deployed.

The Economic Vitality Council is divided into two committees:

  • Business & Workforce Development
  • International Development
