The County of San Mateo, in partnership with Thrive Alliance of Nonprofits in San Mateo County, and San Mateo County Economic Development Association (SAMCEDA), have formed a Complete Count Committee to provide leadership, support, and coordination for county-wide efforts.  Diverse stakeholders across sectors have joined the Complete Count Committee and serve as champions for Census 2020. Committee members will:

  • Strategize and plan for local census promotion
  • Provide input for the County's communication strategy and messaging
  • Disseminate information through their programs, channels, and networks
  • Engage trusted organizations and messengers in media and community outreach
