Historical Note

The San Diego Junior Chamber of Commerce had its beginnings in the late 1920s. The official incorporation took place in 1934. The purpose of the organization is to provide a link between the business establishment and the community in which it operates. This is accomplished by a variety of public service projects. Organizing, budgeting and executing those form a practicum for the membership which is recruited from 18-35 year old businessmen.
