Government Affairs Council

GAC Mission Statement

The mission of the Government Affairs Council (GAC) is to provide a basis for the Greater Fresno Area Chamber of Commerce (Chamber) to act and influence local, state and federal government issues and have a good working relationship with its elected officials, thus creating a favorable and profitable business climate.

Each year, the Fresno Chamber of Commerce takes positions on laws that are being considered at all levels of government. Efforts are continually made to nurture relationships with local, regional and state elected officials and their staff to ensure that our member businesses are represented on issues that might have an impact to our city, region and state. Visit our www.FresnoChamberAdvocacy.com for the most up-to-date information on how we are serving the business community in advocacy. After reviewing the website, if you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact Nathan Alonzo,  Government Affairs Manager, at (559) 495-4821.
