The Government Affairs division is the Chamber’s lobbying team headquartered in Washington with regional offices across the country. We champion the Chamber’s pro-business priorities and advocate for America’s free enterprise system on Capitol Hill.
The Chamber is an effective advocacy organization thanks to its broad membership base, extensive federation network, active grassroots engagement, robust policy experience, strong lobbying expertise, proactive free enterprise agenda, and long-standing pro-business reputation.
The Government Affairs DC and Regional Teams play a vital role in the Chamber’s advocacy efforts and effectiveness through legislative lobbying, subject matter expertise, strategic relationship engagement, coalition participation, and policy monitoring, analysis, and reporting.
The Hill Team brings expertise and strategic acumen to shape strategy, build alliances, and drive effective advocacy on both sides of the aisle through direct Capitol Hill engagement.
Beyond the Beltway
The Regional Team cultivates relationships among local, regional, and state chambers, association partners, and businesses large and small to show support for pro-growth legislation in the communities that Members of Congress represent.
Central to the work of the Government Affairs Team is building stronger relationships with members of Congress that foster trust, support decision-making, enhance credibility and expertise, and promote collaboration to enable effective long-term legislative and political success.
