2021: Better, Stronger, Smarter | New Initiatives, New Faces, and What's Ahead

2021: Better, Stronger, Smarter | New Initiatives, New Faces, and What's Ahead

Dear Chamber Members and Friends, 

Your Government Affairs Committee kicked-off 2021 with their first monthly meeting of the year last week. 

The Committee is made up of 26 members who volunteer their time to help shape our collective policy positions and advocate for the business interests of Greater Chapel Hill-Carrboro. 

*New Initiatives for 2021

During the first meeting of the year, the Committee approved two exciting new initiatives that will help all our members stay connected with the important and ever-evolving advocacy work underway. 

  • New Critical Issues Series: The Committee will build on the success of the 2020 Policy Series by doubling the depth and breath of the forums in 2021 and reshaping them into the "Critical Issues Series," which will launch in February.

  • New Monthly Newsletter: The Committee will release a monthly e-update that reports on the latest economic and labor market indicators and development projects, flags hot topics on-deck with our local, county, and/or state elected officials, and provides insights on matters that matter to your business. The updates will be posted on the "Our Voice" blog platform.
