"Small business isn't for the faint of heart. It's for the brave, the patient and the persistent. It's for the overcomer."
The Chamber works to develop and maintain an active relationship with city/county/state officials and Chamber members, to insure that business concerns are heard and addressed. We offer the resources to enhance the business environment in Pittsburg by advocating for legislation that reduces business costs and supports business legislation and policy. The Pittsburg Chamber of Commerce is your Business Advocate!
We do this by:
The Chamber provides opportunities for members to meet with elected officials through public policy meetings, and legislative receptions. Candidate forums and surveys are developed during each election cycle in order to ensure an informed Chamber membership and business community.
We recognize that some regulation is necessary for a viable free market, but we strongly advocate that government regulation of business operations should be minimal, fair and reasonable. Our efforts get results for our members – results that impact your bottom line!

The Chamber advocacy division addresses public policy issues with participation from public, members and elected officials, open discussions about issues that affect the business community include: economic development, education and workforce development, energy and the environment, healthcare, and transportation & land use. Participation is open to all Chamber members.
Policy positions are formulated and distributed to Chamber members, elected and public officials. Subcommittees convene as needed to address specific issues that are impacting the community. The committees make recommendations on public policy issues to the Chamber's Board of Directors who, in turn, adopt resolutions in support of the recommendations.
