Scott Alvord was elected to the City Council in 2016. Prior to his term on Council, Scott’s service to the city included appointments to the Roseville Parks and Recreation Commission, the Personnel Board, the Downtown Revitalization Committee, the Downtown Roseville Specific Plan Steering Committee, and the Roseville Youth Sports Coalition.
A popular business speaker, trainer, coach, and author, Scott is the founder and CEO of Advanced Development Concepts, LLC, a consulting company founded in 1986 that helps businesses find ways to increase revenue, gain business exposure, reach target customers, and help solve problems. His company has two small subsidiaries: Advanced Programming Concepts (a software/tech company) and Advanced Publishing Concepts (an author-services company). Scott was also the original owner of an award-winning restaurant that he operated for over a decade in downtown Roseville before selling it in February 2016.
Scott served as a senior examiner at the California Awards for Performance Excellence (CAPE), the California version of the national Malcolm Baldridge Quality Awards program. Leading teams that evaluated the corporations, hospitals, schools, civic governments, and military programs provided him with a fresh perspective of looking at complex organizations. He is a certified ambassador and lecturer with Successful Thinkers.
Scott’s volunteer commitment is extensive and includes serving nine years as president of the Downtown Roseville Merchants, on the Executive Board of the Roseville Coalition of Neighborhood Associations (RCONA), as president of both the Westpark and the Pleasant Grove neighborhood associations, and as president of the Fellowship Networking Group, Roseville Chapter. He also served on the Roseville Chamber of Commerce CORE (C3) Committee and the Roseville Chamber of Commerce Revitalization Committee, was an instructor for the Roseville Business Police Academy, chaired a Christian school board for six years, and coached high school sports.
Scott integrates his deep compassion for the growing problem of homelessness with an interest in finding ways to provide an economic cost savings to our region by effectively addressing the issue. He served as the only business representative on the Placer County Homeless Advisory Committee and has since helped form the Placer Rescue Mission (PRM), a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. The PRM is following proven, national models to develop a large “housing first” project that could essentially eliminate resident homelessness in Placer County and save the county $8 million per year once it’s completed.
Scott has been voted “Favorite Local Businessperson” and “Favorite Civic Leader” in Roseville/Granite Bay Style Magazine’s Readers Choice Awards. He was a 2015 and 2016 finalist in the Roseville Chamber of Commerce’s Business Person of the Year award.
He earned an MBA-MCA degree from Sacramento State University and a bachelor degree in computer science from Pacific Union College in Angwin, CA.
A retired gymnast, Scott has been married since 1986 to his college sweetheart, is the father of seven children (some by birth and some through adoption of relatives), and currently has eight grandchildren. He raised his family in Roseville, started companies here, and plans to retire here.
