Government Relations

The greatest expense for most businesses, after compensating employees and covering their benefits, is the cost associated with taxes and government regulations.  The Chamber's number one government affairs goal is to successfully advance the business interests of the state's largest metro area.

Providing a business friendly environment so your company is positioned to grow is critical and during the legislative session, the Chamber aggressively puruses legislative priorities that benefit our members.  The Chamber provides you candidate and issue education, and numerous opportunities for you to interact with elected officials.

The political connections of the business community foster strong economic growth and cultural growth.  Every business owner needs to be proactive and tell elected officials what is important to his or her business.  The Chamber provides the best opportunity to make the connection.
