Government Affairs

The purpose of our Government Affairs committee is as follows:  

  • With more than 220 member businesses, the Greater Franklin County Chamber is committed to remaining the voice of the business community and ensuring a favorable economic, legal, and regulatory climate that encourages prosperity and growth. Our mission is to publicly support policies that will facilitate economic growth in our community and produce positive impacts well into the future. Our 2017 Public Policy Guide was developed to communicate our positions to Chamber members, elected officials, and decision makers. These positions were formulated with essential input from our business community and ultimately approved by our Board of Directors. We ask that you become engaged and help us meet the challenges of a dynamic economy by supporting these positions and moving our community forward.
