REPRESENT

sf.citi recognizes that technological innovation and progress are essential to San Francisco’s continued growth. We advocate for forward-thinking policy that protects the interests of the San Francisco tech industry and community at City Hall and beyond.

POLICY PRIORITIES

At the beginning of the year, sf.citi sets a policy agenda outlining the policy areas that matter most to sf.citi and our members. These focus areas help us at sf.citi prioritize our work, establish a clear scope of our positions for current and prospective members, and let legislators know where the San Francisco tech community stands on the most pressing issues. After releasing our first policy agenda in 2018, sf.citi streamlined the process by making it an official component of the Policy Advisory Committee responsibilities. The sf.citi Policy Advisory Committee identified the below policy priorities as most critical to the success of our tech community and San Francisco as a whole.

The sf.citi Policy Advisory Committee serves the sf.citi Board of Directors and is chaired by a member of the Board. Members of the sf.citi Policy Advisory Committee work closely with the sf.citi team to develop an annual policy agenda and guide sf.citi’s overall policy direction. The Committee includes seven representatives from different sf.citi member companies who meet regularly to develop policies that proactively engage tech companies in improving San Francisco and offer innovative solutions to the city’s regulatory challenges.
