About Us Page

A 29-member Board of Directors governs Visit Sacramento, meeting monthly to review and approve staff-proposed programs, goals and objectives and set policy. Directors are Visit Sacramento members representing all segments of the local business community. Directors serve two four-year terms after which they are eligible for re-election after the absence of one year from the Board.

The Mayor of the City of Sacramento, the City Manager of the City of Sacramento, the County Executive of the County of Sacramento, the General Manager of the Sacramento Convention Center, the President and CEO of the Sacramento Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce, the Executive Director of the Downtown Sacramento Partnership, and the Director of Airports of the Sacramento County Airport System or their designees are Industry Advisors of the Board.

A chairperson, immediate past chair, two vice-chairs, secretary, and a treasurer form the Board's Executive Committee. The committee meets as required with the power to act as the full board, with the exception of amending or repealing the Bureau Bylaws.
