Conversations About Issues That Impact Our Community

Advocacy in Action means having access to elected officials, being informed about issues that impact our community, and advocating for a business-friendly environment. We’ve refreshed this program and we’re excited to be hosting these conversations back at the Chamber office. Each month will feature a guest speaker on a timely topic followed by updates from our State Legislators, all designed to keep you in the know on issues impacting our community.

We look forward to inviting you into our space for open and constructive dialogue!
