Advocacy

Running your business is hard enough.  We know you don’t have the time to stay on top of the ever-increasing legislation and regulations that impact your business.

The Chamber can help.    We are committed to serving as the voice of business, making sure that elected officials and their regulatory staff understand the need to create and maintain an environment in which business can thrive … thereby creating a healthy economy to support our families and communities.   Whether at the state legislature or in city hall, we actively monitor proposed legislation, regulatory rules, and government processes to ensure the interests of Santa Maria’s businesses are represented and protected.

The Chamber is currently working to develop a formal policy platform which will clearly explain to members and to government officials our positions on key issues that impact employers and the business environment in which our members work.   Watch this page over the next few months for draft position statements and updates on our progress.
