To determine what issues we will take a position on, we use a process of member input, research and analysis to arrive at a consensus. We will also attempt to arrive at a consensus on each advocacy issue with our community partners, as well, but acknowledge that may not always be possible. We realize that there may be, from time to time, disagreements with our local governmental partners and their elected officials over some business issue, but our focus will always be on the business implication and consequences for the largest number of our members.
In some cases, the Chamber will issue a resolution of support or opposition on a certain issue. A resolution serves as a public acknowledgement of the Chamber's position on an issue.
