Political Affairs and Federation Relations manages relationships with state and local chambers of commerce, trade associations and small businesses and has a membership presence in every state across the country. The division’s political program is focused on electing or re-electing pro-business candidates to Congress. That goal is supported by the grassroots and lobbying program to promote policy that positively affects businesses and the economy.
