The Chamber is proud to provide key legislative programs as another benefit of partnership. The Business Advocacy Council (BAC) provides a basis for the Chamber to act on local, state, and federal governmental issues. BAC members review and take positions on a range of business related legislation and issues and vote to approve any legislative positions that align with the board-approved public policy platform.
The BAC currently meets virtually on the first Thursday of every month at 8:00 am. This meeting is open to all partners, while appointed council members have voting authority. Contact Evelyn Orr – firstname.lastname@example.org for calendar invite and zoom link.
If you are interested in a formal appointment to the BAC, call 503.350.2006.
