The Advocacy Council's primary purpose is to study, analyze and establish policy, in tandem with our Board of Directors, on government issues and legislation affecting your business community. We then advocate for those positions on behalf of the Chamber.
Our Chamber develops policies and practices based on the underlying principle that creating and promoting a pro-business political environment will directly enhance the success of private enterprise and quality of life.
The Chamber’s advocacy work covers both the minutiae of local issues to sea-change developments that have shaped our community. The Chamber can point to a long history of successful advocacy that includes spearheading plans for the Golden Gate Bridge, donating the original land for the Santa Rosa Junior College, assisting in the launching of Memorial Hospital, supporting the improvements of Highway 101, and promoting runway safety upgrades and improvements at the Charles M. Schulz - Sonoma County Airport.
