A visit by key Silicon Valley business and community leaders to another of North America’s great cities, the annual Study Mission program helps regional leaders to learn to best practices and bring back ideas to make our home an even better place to live and work.

Some of the issues range from developing business investment, transportation, attracting major league sports, and more.

Recent cities visited include Pittsburgh, Denver, New York, Los Angeles, San Diego, Chicago, New Orleans, Portland and Vancouver, B.C.
