The importance of advocacy.

The Chamber is the primary voice of business in the community working with local and state policymakers on issues that improve our regions business environment.

While businesses are busy creating jobs and driving our economy, they deserve to have a strong voice representing them in public policy conversations. The Chamber puts the business community at the table, working alongside government officials and community partners on ways to eliminate barriers to economic growth. We help public officials – and the public at large, when necessary – understand how businesses would be affected by particular policies and try to bring a fiscally responsible, community-minded perspective to policy negotiations.
