What is Governmental Affairs?

How does the Chamber utilize government relations to promote a pro-business environment in our community? The Chamber continuously works within the legislative arena on our members’ behalf:

  • Developing members’ concerns into a pro-business legislative platform and advocating policies that promote business success.
  • Educating public officials about the business community.
  • Producing reports and updates that help members to track legislative action.
  • Producing nonpartisan information about candidates and elections, helping members and their employees to make informed voting decisions.
  • Facilitating a broad range of opportunities for meaningful interaction between members and elected officials.
  • Providing public presentations on advocacy and the legislative process.

It’s Good for Business!

How does having a strong voice in government benefit Chamber members? The Chamber’s government relations efforts contribute to the success of area businesses by:

  • Enabling the Chamber to actively pursue governmental policies that promote a strong business climate and encourage business growth.
  • Keeping members well-informed about public policy matters that impact the business community, empowering members to respond quickly and effectively.
  • Enhancing the Chamber’s visibility and influence with local, state, and federal elected officials.
  • Serving as an informational resource to members and the public on legislative matters.
