Government Affairs Committee
The Mesa Government Affairs Network was created to focus on legislative practices and decisions affecting all professional establishments. This group helps local business owners stay up to date on relevant information occurring at every tier of government. When convened, experts from local, state, and federal levels of office speak on topics that pertain to all organizations. Topics have previously included taxation, business regulation, education, economic development, transportation, and immigration.
This collaborative opportunity allows for the exchange of internal practices and fresh perspectives, helping those in attendance remain aware of the local business climate. Ultimately, the decisions of Arizona’s elected leaders impact all businesses and in turn, the Mesa Government Affairs committee welcomes all who are interested in remaining informed of the changes being made within the community.
When This Committee Meets
This committee meets on the 3rd Friday of each month with an agenda of topics and opportunities to engage the community. See upcoming meetings in the Chamber Event Calendar.
