Continuing its close ties to the San Jose community, Palmer’s West campus hosted a Community Town Hall event with San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo on Oct. 17.

Other Town Hall panel participants included West Campus President Bill Meeker, D.C., M.P.H., F.P.A.C., and Carl Guardino, president/ CEO of the Silicon Valley Leadership Group (SVLG). The SVLG is a public-policy business trade organization that advocates on behalf of more than 400 prominent Silicon Valley employers (including Palmer College) on issues, programs and campaigns that affect the economic health and quality of life in Santa Clara County.

The Community Town Hall series, coordinated through the SVLG, features informal discussion about various socio-economic issues impacting the Silicon Valley, as well as discussion specific to the region in which the Town Hall event is taking place (north San Jose for the event at Palmer West). The program concluded with a Q&A session.

“Hosting the Town Hall event provided a unique opportunity to promote the various ways Palmer impacts the quality of life in the Silicon Valley, from our campus clinic and network of outreach clinics, to our broad participation in community events, such as the Silicon Valley Leadership Group,” says West Campus President William Meeker, D.C., M.P.H., F.P.A.C.

The Town Hall was recorded and aired twice as “The CEO Show” on KLIV-radio (1590-AM). It’ll be posted on the Silicon Valley Leadership Group website .
