Public Policy Committees
Below is a list of frequently asked questions regarding participation in public policy efforts at the Charlotte Chamber. Each committee meets to discuss public policy issues and gain insight into the impact on the business community. The committees serve as avenues for us to engage and inform our members of public policy happenings in the community. Speakers at our meetings range from city, county, regional and federal staff to area businesses depending on the meeting topic.
How can I join and participate in a Public Policy Committee?
Our committees are open to all Chamber members, and you may join by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to be included in the distribution list to be notified of upcoming meetings and policy updates.
Do I have to attend every meeting?
You can attend as many meetings as your schedule allows, we appreciate any and all involvement! Keep in mind you will find a higher benefit if you are able to attend a majority of the meetings.
