Creates Business-Friendly Environments
Another reason why pro-business candidates are important is their abilities to make our community a more attractive place to live and work. These office holders and agencies work hard to attract new business and ensure our community has the skilled employees and pro-business climate that attracts lucrative tax-paying organizations.
Advocating for the Legislative Agenda
In addition to keeping an eye on what’s going on locally, at the state level, and in DC, we create our own legislative agenda with issues that are important to our members. While we advocate for all businesses in our town and look to create a pro-business environment, it is our members whose voice gets heard the loudest by participating in our legislative agenda and helping us define out top advocacy priorities.
If you feel like Washington and the state level just aren’t hearing you or you’re concerned with a local issue, the best way to get your voice heard is through the advocacy efforts of the chamber. We can provide an extraordinarily loud megaphone.
