Policy Committees

How You Can Get Involved

Many of our Upstate Chambers offer public policy focused committees that their members can engage with. These committees often include local, state, and federal updates, presentations from key policy experts, and are a launching pad for the chambers’ legislative agendas. These committees are a great first step for those looking to engage in advocacy, or for those that are government affairs veterans. Contact your local chamber if you’re interested in joining one of these policy committees.
