Advocacy Council

The Advocacy Council is authorized by the Board of Directors to study, analyze and establish positions on public policy issues and legislation affecting the business community. Council Members then advocate for those positions on behalf of the Chamber.  

These policies are based on the underlying principle that creating and promoting a pro-business political environment is critical to the health of our local economy.  Membership on the Council is by appointment of the Chamber Board.
