The Public Policy council, along with Chamber leadership, identifies and monitors local, state and federal policy issues of importance to Chamber members and the business community. The council takes action on policy issues by:

  • Developing and advocating our Legislative Agenda
  • Developing positions on legislative issues for recommendation to the Board of Directors for approval
  • Host legislative programs to provide opportunities for members to become more aware of business issues impacting the Roanoke region

The Public Policy Council is open to members of the Roanoke Regional Chamber. To best achieve the Council’s objectives, membership from a diverse range of industries is encouraged.

Transportation Advocacy Group: The committee meets with city, county, and state officials to review policies and procedures affecting transportation infrastructure in our region and provides testimony at transportation related public hearings. The committee considers and recommends transportation policies for the Chamber’s legislative agenda.
