Representing the Interest of Business with Government
Promoting Political Action for a Favorable Business Climate
Our "watchdog," the Legislative Action Committee (LAC), is an invaluable resource to the Corona Chamber and its members. Composed completely of Chamber members, this volunteer committee's mission is to maintain a favorable business climate in Riverside County and the State. LAC discusses current issues and bills that affect business and make recommendations for Chamber members to then act upon. They assemble letter-writing campaigns, initiate discussions with legislators, and send representatives to speak on the floor during hearings in Sacramento. All funding for this advocacy program is provided by the proceeds of the prior year's Monte Carlo fundraiser. Membership in the Legislative Action Committee is selected to represent the business makeup of our service area.
Meetings are held at 8am on the first Friday of each month, and members of the Chamber are welcome to attend. The committee is DARK in August. The next meeting is September 6. Click here to read the current agenda/minutes.
Started in 2017, the CORONA 2020 plan was enacted by the Corona Chamber in partnership with the City of Corona to focus on three key areas of development: Employment | Health Care | Infrastructure. Working together, the community of Corona can help attract career building jobs, improve heath care, and continue to improve our public spaces and infrastructure. Our strategy is to analyze opportunities for Corona to improve, bring leaders together to share their expertise, and create measurable progress towards goals.

Two legislative summits are scheduled each year: once to Sacramento (typically in May) and once to Washington, D.C. (typically in early Fall). Every attendee pays a registration fee and is responsible for all travel, lodging, meals, and expenses. Stay tuned for information on our 2019 advocacy trips and a recap from 2018 on what was accomplished.
The 2019 Sacramento Legislative Summit was held May 21-23, 2019 (Click here for details). The 2019 Washington DC Summit will be September 9-11, 2019, with optional extension activities (Click here for details).
