policy programs

The Boulder Chamber's advocacy efforts never rest.

We are constantly watching, analyzing and speaking up for a vibrant and prosperous Boulder.

Boulder is unique, and that makes us a special Chamber, serving our business members and supporting a strong economy in a way that reflects Boulder values.

We engage decision makers and participate in advance of formal policy change decisions on your behalf to help make Boulder the best place to locate and grow your business.

We constantly ensure elected officials, government staff and other community leaders are aware of the concerns of the business community.

With the support of the Community Affairs Council, we stay one step ahead of the issues affecting Boulder area businesses and our Board of Directors keep the Chamber proactively engaged.

Community Affairs Council

January 2020 Community Affairs Council meeting
At the core of our effort to develop thoughtful positions on the policies that impact our local businesses and economy is the work of our policy committee, the Community Affairs Council (CAC).
The CAC helps identify and address community issues, provides input and recommends policy direction for consideration by the Boulder Chamber Board of Directors. We thank all of our CAC members for their contributions to the strength of the Boulder Chamber’s advocacy program!
