The Chamber’s government affairs committee consists of nine Chamber members appointed and empowered by the board of directors to review and analyze all legislation, ordinances, and regulations that may affect our members. Meetings are open to all members to attend and participate, but motions may only be made and voted upon by the nine committee members. Any motions approved by the committee will move to the Chamber’s executive committee and board of directors for final ratification.
