ADVOCACY:
The Chamber is a full time advocate for the business community.

The Chamber is extremely involved in advocating for the business community. On the Federal level we work closely with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce with Stephen P. McAllister, Senior Manager, Eastern Region on a variety of issues. On the State and Local level, Chamber President, Stephen C. Boyle personally testifies on your behalf on many legislative issues. We also participate in the SBA Economic Summit which provides state elected officials and the business community to exchange ideas to present an advocacy package for proposed legislative changes. Stephen Boyle serves as Co-Chair to the Healthcare sector.
