2009: Convened San Antonio Job Summit

On December 16, 2009, Mayor Julian Castro convened the 2009 San Antonio Job Summit, a half-day forum bringing together key stakeholders in the community. More than 100 leaders from the business and public sectors joined to provide answers to questions posed by President Obama's Forum on Jobs and Economic Development. The stakeholders represented the following economic sectors: manufacturing, aviation, technology, cyber security, government, insurance, utilities, communication, non-profit, education, small and micro-business, hospitality, labor, and local Chambers of Commerce. After presentations by Mayor Castro and a local economist on the state of the national, regional, and local economies, attendees were divided into 12 roundtable discussions. Conclusions on Federal Policy Implications include that the federal government should enact policies that encourage the resumption of lending nationwide.
