UP COMING: The US Chamber of Commerce GoACT! program provides our Chamber Federation grassroots partners with training in effective issue advocacy and helps them establish or strengthen programs in government affairs and political action at the local, state, and federal levels.
Successful chambers of commerce today are those with strong programs in government affairs, advocacy, and political action. Businesses are increasingly targeted by intrusive regulations and burdensome tax loads. It is the responsibility of chambers of commerce to serve as the voice of business and to influence public policy to improve the business climate and strengthen the economy.
