public affairs (2) If you search online for the “Voice of Business,” Chambers of Commerce frequently appear on search engines, and many Chambers are just that, following legislative issues on a local, state and federal level that could impact their business community.

public affairs (3)              In fact, the Calhoun County Chamber of Commerce tagline is “The Voice of Business.” Our Public Affairs committee works with the mission of representing and being a proactive voice for the members and the overall business community with all levels of government in order to improve and sustain a positive business climate. One of our organization’s Mission Focus Areas is  Advocating as the Political Voice of Business.

Public Affairs 8-9 forumOur cause is area business. Our proposal is our mission, “to promote and sustain the economic growth of the Calhoun County Region.” Within Public Affairs, we create a legislative agenda, describing our commitment and needs to create an improved business climate and quality of life for our region, to share with local, state and federal elected officials. We host Mayors’ Roundtables with our municipal representation, and we present legislative updates with state and federal representatives and senators. With these events and opportunities, we strive to educate and raise awareness of public affairs programs and issues affecting our communities.

Briaunna states, “It is such a wonderful opportunity to work side by side with such phenomenal leaders in the community.   The diligence of the Chamber’s members has allowed this position to be created.  As the Public Affairs Coordinator, my sole responsibility is to advocate on behalf of you!  I will do this by working closely with each of you to ensure that the voice of business is heard.  This includes promoting the Chamber’s state and federal legislative agendas, coordinating the Chamber’s Public Affairs programs and events, drafting and designing documents to keep members informed of legislative updates, and most importantly advancing the interests and the mission of the Chamber.  I look forward to frequent communication, and I invite you to stop by or give me a call with any ideas or interests that you may have.”  Help us welcome Briaunna to the team!
