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 Legislative Dinner/Monte Carlo fundraiser. Contact us for more info! Membership in the Legislative Action Committee is selected to represent the business makeup of our service area.
Our legislative action committee has montlhy in-person meetings that our members can attend. These meetings are held to keep the business community informed and up to date on critical legislative updates that affect their business. Our meetings are FREE to attend for members.
The next meeting will be held on June 12th at 11:30am at Graziano's in Corona.
