Government Affairs

The role of the Chamber of Commerce as an advocate for our business interests was recently re-emphasized by the Chamber Board of Directors in their strategic plan.  The Government Affairs Committee is trying to get a handle on the largest single issue we face as a business group, how do we find a stable county governmental structure to enhance our business climate?

As a Chamber Member, we urge you to contact any member of the board, or committee member, to let us know your concerns and where you believe we can best advocate for our collective business interests.
