The council serves as the primary platform for mid-market business leaders to provide input to formulate and advance a strong pro-business agenda. As the unintended consequences of laws and regulations often hit this business demographic particularly hard, the council serves as a vehicle for members to amplify their voice to legislators, policymakers, and regulators in Washington, D.C. on a range of policy issues.

Membership in the Middle Market Business Council requires mid-market Chamber membership at the appropriate dues level and a recommendation by a U.S. Chamber representative. The Chamber strives for appropriate membership balance on council, including geographic and industry representation.
