Leveraging the strength of the collective business community
A non-partisan organization that does not endorse or other wise support candidates or political parties, the Greater Derry Londonderry Chamber of Commerce does engage in issues-based political advocacy at the state and local levels. The Chamber’s advocacy efforts focus on issues that affect the business community and the region’s economic development prospects.
Spearheading the Chamber’s advocacy efforts is the Government Affairs Committee, which serves to identify and study issues of interest to the business community and recommend to the Board of Directors legislation on which the committee believes the organization should take a position. The Government Affairs Committee meets the fourth Friday of every month at 8am at the Chamber. All Chamber members are eligible and encouraged to attend committee meetings.
