Business Advocacy Council
The Business Advocacy Council (BAC) is another benefit of partnership and provides a basis for the Chamber to act on local, state, and federal governmental issues.
The Chamber is proud to provide key legislative programs as another benefit of partnership. The Business Advocacy Council (BAC) provides a basis for the Chamber to act on local, state, and federal governmental issues. BAC members review and take positions on a range of business-related legislation and issues and vote to approve any legislative positions that align with the board-approved public policy platform.
Homelessness is top of mind right now. Winter is coming. Data from Washington County in January show an average of 800 people experience homeless each evening. We believe that number may be growing. Metro’s Supportive Housing Services funds are coming here. Shelters and options are in development.
Our Advocacy Council has formed a homelessness task force. If you are interested in participating please reach out to us.
The BAC meets on the first Thursday of every month at 8:00 am. This meeting is open to all partners, while appointed council members have voting authority.
If you are interested in a formal appointment to the BAC, call 503.350.2006.
