Event Details

The Oxnard Chamber’s September 14 Knowledge & Networking lunch will feature the State of the Port report. The Port of Hueneme is one of the biggest economic engines in Ventura County. It is owned and operated by The Oxnard Harbor District, created in 1937, as an independent special district (business enterprise) and political subdivision of the State of California. Its mission is to operate as a self-supporting Port that enforces the principles of sound public stewardship maximizing the potential of maritime-related commerce and regional economic benefit.

The Oxnard Harbor District’s policies are set by a five-member Board of Harbor Commissioners elected at large from the District. Day-to-day business operations of the Harbor District are administered by the CEO & Port Director and professional staff. 

The Harbor District, by its charter, can acquire, construct, own, operate, control or develop any and all harbor works or facilities necessary to efficiently accomplish its mission. It prepares and controls its own budget, as well as fiscal activities. It is responsible for all Port construction and operations. Port of Hueneme Harbor Commissioner and President Jason Hodge will be our keynote speaker. A second generation Oxnard native, Jason Hodge is a local firefighter.  He firmly sees the Port of Hueneme as a vital but often underutilized asset of our local economy.  With a focus on the Port’s developmental role in our regional economy, Commissioner Hodge is committed to pursuing creative, proactive, results oriented policies to ensure that the Port’s full potential is realized. He remains committed to expanding job opportunities through positive business development that benefits our local residents.   

The Knowledge & Networking lunch will be held at the Residence Inn Oxnard/River Ridge at noon on September 14. Advance reservations are requested and can be made on our website, Pricing starts at $35.
