The Public Affairs and Advocacy Team has released the Boulder Chamber’s 2017 Policy Agenda, outlining key public policy positions for the year ahead.
The Boulder Chamber arrived at its policy positions based on feedback from our members along with review by the Community Affairs Council and final approval of the Boulder Chamber Board of Directors.
“Regional and local transportation solutions, workforce housing diversity, land use decisions and the costs of doing business within Boulder are the issues that have the greatest effect on our business community,” said Andrea Meneghel, Director of Public Affairs at the Boulder Chamber. “As such, our advocacy efforts will be focused on creating a positive impact in these areas, balancing businesses’ needs with community goals and values.” Read the full 2017 Policy Agenda here.
