Business Advocacy

The Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce is the only regional chamber in the Dayton market providing a voice for its business members through advocacy. With two lobbyists on staff and a satellite office in Columbus, the Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce offers unparalleled influence on the local, regional, state and national levels. The Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce’s Board of Trustees and Executive Committee guide the organization’s public policy goals and positions, but the chamber also offers its members advocacy on an individual basis. Through its Government Affairs event series, Legislative Day in Columbus and bi-annual Legislative Reception, Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce members also have access to decision makers and leaders who can get things done and help them grow.
