Now celebrating nearly 25 years of success, the San Diego Convention Center has generated $22.9 billion in regional economic impact, $430.3 million in tax revenues and supports 12,500 jobs countywide.
“We welcome these two outstanding community leaders to the board,” said Nico Ferraro, board chair. “The Corporation will benefit tremendously from their expertise.” Ms. Carroll is a highly-regarded appellate practitioner with more than 30 years of experience handling appeals in federal, state and bankruptcy appellate courts.
