ChamberWest meets Salt Lake County Council

We are in the process of transitioning our Government Action Committee into our new Legislative Affairs Committee.  This committee will meet monthly April – December to learn of issues important to our four communities.  Subcommittees will identify and create a white paper around important issues such as Air Quality, Economic Development, Education, Healthcare, Small Business Development, Utilities and Water Development. During January – March while the legislators are in session, the committee will review proposed legislation and take positions.    The committee will then meet with legislators weekly to share our insight and positions and to provide a forum for legislators to communicate to business and civic leaders of bills in process.  The current plan is to also continue participation with the South Valley Chambers Coalition as part of the Western Growth Coalition.

Starting in August of 2016, the new Legislative Affairs Committee will meet on the second Wednesday of every month in the Conference Room of Jordan Valley Medical Center at 8:00 am where a complimentary breakfast will be provided for chamber members.
