Our Policy Team

Our Policy group combines research and analysis with government relations. We work closely with departments across the organization to serve our members with relevant programs and useful communications.

Government Relations

The Government Relations team leads the Chamber’s efforts to advocate for specific policies at the city, state and federal levels. It also works with elected officials and their staff, Chamber members and other stakeholders to support implementation of key policies.

Research and Data Analytics Capabilities

We work to collect and analyze myriad data from government, economic, business and other sources to support our members’ needs. This includes informing our robust policy and advocacy agenda, as well as identifying emerging issues that affect the broader workforce and economy. We regularly produce objective analysis and reports for our members, stakeholders and the public to provide a comprehensive look at every aspect of an issue.
