Championing business causes is perhaps one of the most underrated benefits of Chamber membership. We believe strong advocacy for business is essential to maintain our healthy business climate.

Education is the third tenet of our public affairs process - ensuring our members understand why we have taken certain stances and understanding what the impacts could be on their business and quality of life.
