Protecting & Supporting Business
Having a seat at the right table is important when doing business!
For this reason, the Anderson Area Chamber of Commerce works to build, maintain, and cultivate relationships with local, state, and government officials.
More often than not, the Chamber is one of the first calls made when important legislation is on the table. The Chamber looks to its business members when deciding to either support or fight legislation.
When legislative issues arise, we get behind or fight for legislation with a pro-business agenda. As specific issues arise, the Anderson Area Chamber's Board of Directors vote on whether or not to fight or endorse an issue.
The more members invested in the Chamber of Commerce, gives strength to the organization with a larger voice when dealing with law makers.
Each year, a legislative agenda is drafted with the direction and input of the Chamber's Public Policy Committee. This committee is made up of area businesses, professionals, and law makers who meet on a monthly basis.
