Government Affairs


The Chamber serves as the lead advocate for business at all levels of government. By developing positions on issues of public policy and communicating these positions, the Chamber creates value for its members. The Chamber provides a forum for the business voice to be heard. As a result, state, local, and federal leaders seek the audience of our members and their opinion with regard to public policy.

  • State Legislative Initiatives
