Advocating for you
Since 1909, the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce has served as the leading voice for the business community. Now representing over 700 businesses, the Chamber supports legislation and regulations that reduce the cost of doing business in Michigan. The Chamber also opposes legislation that is over-burdensome or places Michigan-based businesses at a competitive disadvantage with businesses in other states. We know that the entrepreneur is the heart and soul of the American economy and that small business is the engine of economic recovery. We are taking that message to Washington DC, Lansing, and Jackson City Hall so that your dreams have a shot at becoming reality.
LEGISLATIVE ADVOCACY CENTER
The Chamber’s Legislative Committee is here to listen, understand, advocate and engage our elected representatives on your behalf, ensuring that your government is helping you do business.
Because the Chamber’s role is to ensure our county’s ability to have a favorable and profitable business climate, we have launched a new advocacy website.
The Chamber’s legislative voice is only as strong as the Chamber membership makes it. We have set up a system that will give Jackson County businesses a voice. For that voice to be valuable, it must articulate what hinders your business dreams – so we need you.
