Since the first Summit in 2012, thousands of public- and private-sector leaders have worked together to identify the shared priorities of California’s regional economies. More than 700 experts and practitioners continue to work on seven Action Teams advancing the Summit’s 5-year plan, A Roadmap to Shared Prosperity. The Summit agenda advances the triple bottom line—promoting a prosperous economy, a green and resilient environment, and thriving communities for all Californians. We’re making steady progress—and we’re not done yet.

On November 12–13, Summit leaders will gather in Ontario for the 2015 California Economic Summit, co-hosted by the Inland Empire Economic Partnership. In attendance will be Treasurer John Chiang, Controller Betty Yee, and Secretary of State Alex Padilla, along with dozens of other state and regional policy leaders.
