Local Public Policy

Local Public Policy

The Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce takes an active role in advocacy on local government issues because of their distinct connection to the Chamber's mission and to quality of life in the Springfield region.  In order to assist the Chamber’s Board of Directors in establishing policy positions on local issues, the Chamber established the Local Issues Public Policy Task Force in 2004.  The 30-member appointed task force formally reviews upcoming local election issues, considering the business and community impact of each proposal. 

In 2010, the Chamber established the Voice of Business Committee, a 40-member committee committed to making sure the business perspective is heard at City Council meetings.
