Dollars & Sense: Crime and Economic Development in San Antonio Luncheon

San Antonio is the seventh largest city in the United States with nearly 1.5 million residents recorded in 2016.  It is projected to grow by one million people by the year 2040 and is part of one of the fastest-growing regions in the country.  With the City’s 300th anniversary celebration upon us, and as an attractive destination to visit, live and work, how do we prepare for the future growth of our city?

The San Antonio Chamber of Commerce invites you to an insightful discussion about economic development and crime in San Antonio with our community’s top law enforcement leaders:

  • San Antonio Police Chief William McManus,
  • Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar, and
  • Bexar County Criminal District Attorney Nicholas “Nico” LaHood

An equally impressive community leader, Jenna Saucedo-Herrera, President and CEO of the San Antonio Economic Development Foundation (SAEDF), will moderate this exciting discussion.   Jenna has completed her first year at the helm of the SAEDF where she is responsible for advancing the diversification and growth of the San Antonio regional economy through domestic and international business development, partnerships and market strategies.

Please join us on September 13 for what will be a riveting discussion on the future of our city over lunch.  We will close the program with questions from the audience, and we encourage your engagement.

For questions about the event, please contact Belinda Garza Hartwig, Vice President of Economic Development, at 210-229-2199 or  For sponsorship opportunities, contact Linda Corkill, Vice President of Special Events at 210-229-2129 or
