The Government Relations Committee brings together business leaders from our communities who volunteer their time to focus on the legislative initiatives of the Traverse City Area Chamber of Commerce and the Northwest Michigan Regional Chamber Alliance.
The committee monitors legislative and policy issues at the local, state and federal levels and the impact of these issues on business and economic development in the Grand Traverse region. The committee may draft and recommend to the Board positions on issues to be adopted and advocated to government officials, membership and the public.
The Government Relations Committee adopted the following goals for 2013:
- Education of Chamber membership (including but not limited to elections, legislation, ballot proposals, calls to action);
- Support and advocate for job and investment creation in the Grand Traverse region;
- Support and advocate for simplified regulatory requirements on businesses.
