Government Relations

Chamber Government Relations

The Chamber is a dedicated partner in working with local, state and federal government officials to ensure all business are supported and represented. The Chamber is NOT a Political Action Committee (PAC) and therefore cannot and does not endorse or lobby for specific candidates and/or legislation. However, we do work to network with officials and candidates and ensure members are fully aware of candidates, legislation and initiatives so they make informed decisions in the voter booth.

For more information on the Chamber’s Government Relations initiatives, email Cooper.
