In October 2006, the newly formed Partnership, per Executive Order S-05-05, delivered its recommendations to the governor in the Strategic Action Proposal (SAP) – “The San Joaquin Valley: California’s 21st Century Opportunity.”
The Partnership developed three overarching goals for the Valley:
- grow a prosperous economy
- create a quality environment
- achieve social equity
In support of these goals, the Partnership developed 10 work groups made up of stakeholders from public and private sectors and with the purpose to support the Partnership’s mission by creating and fostering a culture of leadership, action, and accountability.
