As a member of the Chamber we encourage you to make your voice heard and your opinion known on public policy issues at the local, state and federal levels. Chamber members receive access to your elected officials and representatives while keeping abreast of the issues that impact your business.
We keep you informed of our efforts through:
- Candidate Forums
- Pre- and Post-Session Legislative Breakfasts that offer an overview of the General Assembly Sessions
- Annual Presidential Address featuring the area’s College and University Presidents
- Additional educational opportunities to help you learn about changes in public policy that could impact your business
Public Policy Committee
The Chamber’s Public Policy Committee provides a forum for members to discuss and establish positions on public policy issues. The committee focuses on topics such as education, health care, transportation, tax policy and related business-climate issues. The Committee meets the first Tuesday of each month at 12:00 noon at the Chamber Offices.
