Your Advocate at Work

The Chamber is the voice of the business community. With the strength of 1,100-plus member businesses, representing over 63,000 employees, we offer influence and advocacy to position our community and region for economic growth and success. This means supporting issues and candidates that create an environment where businesses can thrive and prosper. We’ve taken positions on issues important to business like the increase to the county innkeepers tax, READI funding, South Shore improvements, U.S. 31 upgrades, daylight-saving time and local government reform.
