The Governmental Affairs Group of the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce is charged with government relations and promotion of the public policy positions of our local, state and federal branches of government. It also cultivates and strengthens relationships between the Chamber’s membership and elected and appointed officials across all levels of government -- this includes the hosting of various initiatives and programs in Miami, Tallahassee and Washington, D.C. In addition, the Governmental Affairs Group works in conjunction with the Chamber’s substantive committees for the development of its Legislative Package.
The Greater Miami Chamber has a defined process designed to build a robust legislative platform on issues that impact the South Florida community as a business center. The Chamber’s Committees discuss and vote on public policy items, including but not limited to: transportation and infrastructure, healthcare, workforce development and retention, education, environment, insurance, growth management and smart urban development, disaster recovery and business continuity, economic development, tourism and free trade.
As a regional Chamber that promotes sustainable economic and business development in South Florida, one of the most important and direct ways to achieve this is through proactive and engaged advocacy, on behalf of the business community, with full participation of our membership.
