Advocacy

Our committees and board develop positions on issues affecting our members, from trade to tax to industry standards. Through these positions, we advocate for our members to government both here and in the United States. To participate on a committee, you must work for a Financial Member Company of the Chamber. Current committee members enjoy exclusive access to thought leaders and government in order to address issues affecting their business.
