Keeping the interests and concerns of the Chamber's nearly 1500 member firms uppermost in the minds of the area's legislative delegations is a top priority for the Chamber.
By listening to its members, by polling them frequently, and by involving them on committees and task forces, the Chamber is able to draft a legislative agenda and present it to elected officials in the collective voice of its membership. While individual contacts with lawmakers and elected officials carries clout, a unified voice representing nearly 1800 businesses is even more powerful.
Addressing issues as complex and cumbersome as tort reform, holding the line on new taxes, succession planning and taxes, and others could be overwhelming. But with trained, experienced professional staff, the Chamber is able to articulate the concerns of its members and apply incentive for elected officials to act wisely.
