Chair Hogan thanked outgoing Chair Sager for her tireless work and commitment to SAMCEDA:

"Thank you for being an amazing Board Chair, amazing champion and leader of our organization. You have been a mentor and supporter for the Board and staff. You have been the same for our members and the same for the stakeholders in the community as well...we are all grateful for the time that you have committed to SAMCEDA, for the kindness you have shown and most of all, your commitment to not only SAMCEDA but to San Mateo County. You have allowed SAMCEDA to become a strong voice for an inclusive and a resilient San Mateo County economy."
