Advocacy in Action

At any given time there are a wide variety of projects or laws proposed or about to be implemented that can impact the way you do business and affect your long-term growth. The Chamber is an active advocate on behalf of its membership to help provide an effective voice for the business community before those decisions are finalized.

The Chamber is at its most effective when backed by an active and informed membership. As part of its role, our Policy and Government Affairs Committee works with Chamber staff to become fully informed on all aspects of any issue that impacts our community before working together to support the change or propose alternative solutions.
