Economic Vitality Council Overview
Funding for the Chamber's economic development work is made possible by the Hotel Improvement District's (HID) assessment on sold rooms. As a result, we are charged to enhance the greater Irvine business environment, help businesses grow and expand, attract new businesses, and encourage collaboration that builds our reputation and encourages startups. The Chamber's economic development work, committees, and task forces attract and engage talent and expertise from the business and education communities and government and non-profit organizations as well as Chamber members.
The committees meet to review and discuss progress reports and recommendations. The Economic Vitality Council meets bi-annually to share the committee and task force work with Chamber membership and community.
