The Greater Coachella Valley Chamber of Commerce is proud to represent our members in the local, state and federal halls of government. Legislative advocacy is more vital than ever for our small business members. As such, we are proud to be the only chamber in the Coachella Valley that employees a full-time legislative representative. The GCVCC team regularly visits local City Halls, Sacramento, and Washington DC in an effort to advocate for business friendly legislation, and oppose harmful legislation when necessary.
Our Business Legislative Advocacy Committee is made up of chamber members and business leaders from around the valley. The committee is a nonpartisan advisory arm of the Chamber that helps inform our Community Development Officer (CDO) on current legislation and platform positions. These meetings are open to all membership. If you are interested in attending, please contact Patrick Swarthout, our CDO, by calling the chamber at 760.347.0676.
