As the leading voice of the business community for the region since 1895,
we make your business a priority by actively protecting your rights at the local, state, and federal level.
At the local, state and federal levels, the Metro Chamber advocates for policies and candidates supporting job creation and retention and economic growth. 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.
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.
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.
