Back to chamber councils.

Share your opinion and insights on issues

The Legislative Affairs Task Force 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 Task Force 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 Task Force will develop the Chamber’s legislative positions each year, and oversee and provide opportunities for connections between elected officials, businesses and Chamber members.

Objectives
