The NACD Northern California Chapter has established the Capital Valley Advisory Board as the focal point and center of excellence for board and governance matters focused on the needs of businesses in the Capital Valley region. The advisory board will serve and enhance the area business community through its targeted board director education and peer exchange initiatives, complementing other key business-building efforts in the region.
The Capital Valley region encompasses the business communities in the greater Central Valley area, largely identified by the greater Sacramento area and the communities surrounding the I-5 and Highway 99 corridors, with Redding and Chico to the north and Modesto, Fresno, and Stockton to the south. Past programs have also been attended by companies from the Fairfield, Vacaville, Napa, and Reno areas, where the central Sacramento location has provided more effective access to topics and expertise. The Capital Valley region is home to hundreds of private businesses that are founded and built by entrepreneurs, in addition to multi-generation family businesses and investor-owned enterprises.
A reception was held on June 19 at Piatti Ristorante & Bar to introduce the expertise and resources of NACD, while our Founding Sponsors provide the business perspective and connectivity to the Capital Valley region, allowing us to bring the best board director programs to the community. Crowe LLP, Five Star Bank, and Weintraub Tobin have provided leadership with initial support.
Don Yee is serving as the Chair of the Capital Valley Advisory Board, and is an NACD Northern California board director, NACD Board Leadership Fellow, and independent director on several private companies in the Capital Valley region, including the first independent director for Blue Diamond (recognized as Private Company Board of the Year 2017).
