Public Policy/Gov’t Affairs
Business Before Government
The Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce is the largest and most broadly based business organization in North San Diego County, representing more than 1,700 business members and 75,000 employees! The Chamber is the largest privately funded chamber of commerce in California, second largest chamber of commerce in San Diego County, and tenth largest in the state of California. Chamber members include companies of all sizes and industries, from start-up to established, from entrepreneurial to corporate.
We constantly communicate with our elected officials and decision makers on where the Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce stands on numerous issues important to the business community. It is our goal to create, develop and utilize cutting-edge policies and practices that will provide pro-business legislation. The Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce’s Public Policy Guide provides direction that allows us to react quickly to legislative issues.
The Chamber is a diverse organization of business professionals working together for a better Carlsbad. An essential aspect of the Chamber’s charter is to ensure Carlsbad’s economic prosperity by serving as a strong voice for member businesses. We act as the voice for business and are committed to ensuring a favorable economic, legal and regulatory climate for the business community. It is at the heart of our mission to publicly support policies that will facilitate economic growth in our community. We encourage you to take the time to become engaged in these issues, and in turn, actively communicate with your elected officials. This section of our web page was developed to educate you about the issues and help you take part in the legislative process.
Without input from the business community initiatives at all levels of government could adversely impact the ability of business to generate jobs and create higher standards of living. When business leaders communicate with their elected officials the results is better public policy. Here you can get information on how to contact your elected officials from the federal government down to city hall.
We invite you to go to our Carlsbad Votes for Business web portal to become active in the legislative process. For us to succeed in accomplishing our many legislative goals, it is essential that you, the local businesses, become engaged in the issues and active in communicating the Chamber’s positions to our elected officials at all levels of government.
