Advocacy

An important benefit of Chamber membership is our advocacy efforts as a broad-based voice for initiatives and public policies that grow business and employment opportunities, as well as overall economic prosperity. A healthy local economy depends on a business sector that interacts effectively, clearly and often with our government and nonprofit partners.

By proactively engaging with community stakeholders, sharing ideas, reporting important data points and leveraging one business success into the next, the Chamber seeks to be a respected, thoughtful and engaged public policy partner on behalf of our members.

Chamber members are welcome to provide input or raise concerns related to public policy (for example, regulatory, legislative or taxing issues) to the Public Policy Committee for review. These types of inquiries may be sent to Chamber President Elizabeth Cromwell, staff liaison to that committee.
