GOVERNMENT AFFAIRS COUNCIL

The Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Council mission is to ensure that local, state and federal government policies are conducive to a strong and healthy business climate for Cape Ann, and that community decisions consistently support quality economic growth. The Council is a dynamic volunteer committee consisting of members drawn from diverse business backgrounds. As such, the council serves as a collective voice for the Cape Ann Business community with regard to governmental policies and affairs affecting our member businesses.

The Council shall advocate for and represent the views of the Cape Ann business community to local, state and federal agencies and elected officials, as well as any other necessary parties. This shall be accomplished by engaging with such officials in meaningful policy discussions on members’ behalf, and by fostering good overall communications and positive relations.

The Council shall also from time to time sponsor public forums for candidate debates and for discussion of public policy-related issues affecting the Cape Ann Business community. In keeping with Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce policy and practice, the Council will not take or recommend positions on individual projects, but instead will review and make recommendations on legislative and public policy matters, such as zoning, regulations, and public transportation and infrastructure projects and concerns affecting our membership base as a whole.
