Leadership Program GovAffairs Business Awards Ambassadors

Your Chamber recognizes that for many of our members, keeping track of the latest legislative development is nearly impossible. One of the greatest benefits of being part of the Chamber is our legislative advocacy at every level of government. 

Throughout the year, Chamber staff, the Government Affairs Committee and the Board of Directors proactively track issues that might impact business at the local, state and federal levels.  We aim to inform our members of these matters and let the voice of the business community be heard.

The Government Affairs Committee meets on a monthly on the 1st Thursday of the month.  If you have an issue, concern or would like the committee to research something please contact the Chamber.

Your Chamber is a Full Partner in the Northern Michigan Chamber Alliance which advocates at the legislative level for Northern Michigan businesses. Click here to stay up to date on the legislative hearings and priorities for our area.

Being an Ambassador has been very fulfilling both personally and professionally.  It has allowed me to meet many people who have become friends and clients.
