Chamber Role

Chamber’s Legislative Advocacy Benefits Members

One of the most valuable, and often overlooked, benefits of membership in the Newport Beach Chamber of Commerce is our Legislative Advocacy program of work. The Chamber analyzes proposed legislation and takes positions on important issues, from support for regulatory reform in Sacramento to aggressively pursuing economic development opportunities in the city that could affect your business.

Though you might not find the time to attend our many events, programs and committee meetings, you can take comfort in knowing the Chamber is working diligently on behalf of your business.

Steve Rosansky, Chamber President and CEO, functions as the voice of the business community, attending City Council, Planning Commision and relevant City commitees that have a direct impact on business.

In addition to taking action on legislative issues affecting business on both the state and local levels, we encourage our members to take action by connecting with the appropriate government officials to express their opinions. Chamber staff is readily available to help guide you through the lengthy, and often complicated, legislative measures that affect your business so you can express your opinion. By participating in weekly conference calls with the California Chamber of Commerce, our staff keeps abreast on these important legislative issues.

The Newport Beach Chamber of Commerce serves as the leading business advocate for area businesses. We will remain steadfast in our efforts to shape a business community in which companies of all sizes will prosper.
