Our Vision

To Build Community for the Common Good

We see unity and synergy across the civic, business and church & non profit spheres – all using their influence and resources for the common good; empowered communities resourced from within caring for the oppressed and downtrodden; we see aspirations of young people rising, people humbly yet proudly feeling their sense of place and their sense of duty to flourish in North County San Diego.

Our Focus

We are a community network of inspired leaders in business, church & non profit, and civic spheres, focused on Oceanside, Carlsbad, Vista & Encinitas.

Leadership Team

Known as SALT, our Strategic Action Leadership Team is made up of individuals from Oceanside, Carlsbad, Vista and Encinitas, in the civic, business, church or non-profit sector.
