POLICY COMMITTEES

The Sacramento Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce has updated our standing policy and advocacy committee structure to align with the 4-Point Business Promise and advance the 2021 strategies as determined by our board of directors allowing for greater cross-collaboration between industries as well as direct engagement with decision makers and the Capital Region business community. These committees will have three quarterly meetings with one policy summit annually.

Please consider serving as an advocate for the Metro Chamber and our community by emailing Jazmine Alop to learn more.
