The Fresno Chamber Continues its “Call to Action” by Representing the Interests of Businesses
The Fresno Chamber has developed a government affairs program complete with mission and vision statements, goals, and long term strategies.
In order to cultivate its vital agenda, the Fresno Chamber works closely with its Government Affairs Council (GAC).
Ongoing efforts are 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.
How The Fresno Chamber Can Consider Your Issue
If you would like to include a specific business related issue on the GAC agenda you must:
1) Submit your proposed issue including but not limited to: background of the issue, pros and cons, fact sheets, list of those supporting and opposing in writing to the GAC Chair or the Government Affairs Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org by the fifth day of each month.
2) Your proposed issue must include a request with regards to a recommended Fresno Chamber position (such as SUPPORT or OPPOSE) including an explanation for such recommended position.
3) You or a representative of your issue must attend the GAC meeting in order to answer any questions relating to your agenda item.
The GAC meeting agenda is sent via email five business days prior to the meeting date. Once the agenda is distributed to the committee members, there will be no additions to the agenda for any reason unless approved by the GAC chair.
