Public Policy Agenda

A Regional Vision for Prosperity

The Columbia Chamber strives to promote issues that are important to regional growth and support public policy and economic development. By creating and maintaining a unified body, we continue to make great progress in developing a regional vision.

PUBLIC POLICY GUIDING PRINCIPLES

The Columbia Chamber supports working together with all constituents of the local community to foster a superior quality of life and safe environment. We collaborate with elected officials and community partners to encourage transparency, inclusivity, economic development, the creation of new jobs and expansion of existing businesses.

Each year the Columbia Chamber Public Policy Committee takes a position regarding key issues that affect the business climate. Those positions are:

  • Support legislation and public policies that will help the region to attract new quality business, industry and jobs.
  • Help entrepreneurs create new and expand existing businesses.
  • Help the region retain, recruit and grow existing business and industry.
