Advocacy

Our Chamber serves as a change leader, and supports economic prosperity and unity among partner organizations and various government agencies throughout our parish and region.  Grassroots work is done by polling members to determine which issues our Chamber should address and then providing a voice of business to city, parish, state and federal elected officials. Surveys are developed as needed and results announced to raise awareness and increase voter turnout in all elections.  Through events such as our Legislative Session Wrap Up, and election forums for city, parish, legislative and Gubernatorial races, we identify and communicate to business owners the impact of public policies and laws upon business operations and serve as the collective voice of business in the public policy arena.
