Back to chamber councils.

SHARE YOUR OPINION AND INSIGHTS ON ISSUES

The Legislative Affairs Council is the main advocate for legislation that has a positive impact on the greater Elkhart business community and will engage with partners to do the same for the region.  The Council will research legislative issues impacting our business community, especially in the areas of economic development, education, environment, OSHA, technology, transportation, workforce, women and young professionals. The Council will develop the Chamber’s legislative positions each year, and oversee and provide opportunities for connections between elected officials, businesses and Chamber members.

Objectives

  • Have a say – share your opinion and insights on issues impacting your company, organization, industry and community.
  • Advocate for legislation that has a positive impact on the greater Elkhart business community. And engage with partners to do the same for the entire region.
  • Your insights, along with those of fellow chamber members and council research, will aide in developing legislative priorities each year.
  • Oversee and guide opportunities for connections between elected officials, businesses and chamber members.
