Government Affairs Council

The Regional Chamber is fortunate to have a talented cross section of business and non-profit leaders who serve on the Government Affairs Council (GAC). Members of the council volunteer their time and talents to oversee the focus of our government affairs initiatives. The GAC considers important legislative issues affecting the state and region and recommends action by the Regional Chamber Board of Directors. The Council also provides direction in formulating the Chamber’s Public Policy Agenda and hosts political update events throughout the year featuring federal, state and local government officeholders and candidates.
