Your Voice

Advocacy provides you and your business a voice. Whether it is a local, state or national issue, your Chamber provides opportunities to make sure that your point of view is clearly heard by the area communities and decision makers.

Education, transportation, healthcare and business friendly policies are important to us and our members. We personally stay in contact with our area elected officials and make them aware of how their decisions may positively or negatively affect business, the economy and quality of life in our region.

Navigating Government

Our work goes beyond providing our area businesses a voice on local, state or national issues. Your Chamber is there to help your business move forward.

Need help. . .

  • Getting a business permit?
  • Resolving an issue with outdated regulations?
  • Recovering from a disaster?
  • Obtaining financial assistance?

No issue is too large or too small for your Chamber staff to take on. We work to ensure that the Valley is an excellent place to do business today, tomorrow and in the future.

Just give us a call at 203-925-4981 or email us today for assistance.

Area Elected Officials

Remember your elected officials cannot serve your interests unless they hear your issues and concerns. It is vital to stay in touch regularly and make them aware of how their decision may positively or negatively affect business, the economy and quality of life in our region.
