Government Affairs

Government affairs

The Greater Green Bay Chamber understands business professionals are focused on their day-to-day responsibilities and may find it difficult to participate in the daily policy debates which can impact their future ability to grow and modernize. The Chamber serves as the voice of business in our community by looking out for the best interests of area employers and their employees at all levels of government.

We act as the voice of business in a number of ways:

Public Policy Council
This is a group of community and government affairs advisers from Chamber member companies and allied business organizations who advise the Chamber’s officers and board of directors on public policy positions. Through the legislative agenda or individual position statements, the Council may recommend action on local, state or federal issues affecting business, including legislative and regulatory matters.

Legislative agenda
Every two years, the Chamber’s Public Policy Council sets a legislative agenda based on conversation and debate with Chamber members and leading area experts.  The agenda outlines the Chamber’s local, state and federal public policy priorities.

Legislative scorecards
Annually, we work collaboratively with the Northeast Wisconsin Chamber Coalition (NEWCC) to compile legislative scorecards of how legislators voted on business issues of relevance to our membership and legislative agenda.
