Throughout the year there are any number of high-value touch points not only with more than 1,400 member businesses and community leaders that frequent Chamber-sponsored events, but also local, state and national representatives, international business leaders, manager training specialists and employee engagement professionals.
Each day we advocate on behalf of the business community on a wide range of issues. Whether we are trying to bring in a new airline, helping to draft more thoughtful regulations or working to protect open space, we advocate to sustain and create a better business environment. Behind each SLO Chamber public policy decision is an extensive volunteer-driven committee system.
