We play an active role fostering and supporting economic development policies to protect your right to do business, improve business conditions and grow your business. We amplify the voices of our members and speak collectively on behalf of the largest business community in Northern California.

ANNUAL ADVOCACY PROGRAMS

Each year, the Metro Chamber organizes advocacy programs that focus directly on improving the business and economic climate and the livelihood of the Capital Region.

Our State Legislative Summit brings participants directly to the State Capitol as we work to advance specific issue areas that support our regional economy and hear directly from state elected officials on priorities for the legislative session.

The Capitol-to-Capitol (Cap-to-Cap) program originated nearly 50 years ago and has since brought participants from all six-counties to Washington, D.C. to meet with our federal representatives in Congress and Administration and agency officials on regional topics that improve our economic livelihood.

PARTNERSHIPS

We help drive policy in every area critical to economic growth by playing a leading role in partnerships with other advocacy groups, trade organizations, and area chambers and through collaboration with public agencies, county offices, and our local colleges and universities.

Our well-established relationships with the community and business leaders enhance and strengthen our members’ ability to succeed and drive job growth.

The Sacramento Metro Chamber is our policy engine for the region, this is where it all happens.
