As a not for profit, we truly couldn't exist without members.  Our industry and service provider members join our organization for many reasons, but one thing remains consistent - the power of connections.  Though there are many business development organizations in San Diego, SDSI is unique in that we provide a channel for like minded businesses to cross disciplines and make connections that support the growth of business and the SAL industry as a whole.
