Chamber Board Sets Legislative Agenda

The Mission of the Pekin Area Chamber of Commerce is to foster and promote a vibrant business environment for the benefit of chamber members. The leadership of the chamber recognizes that legislative and regulatory actions of government at all levels - local, county, state and national - have a significant impact on the business environment in the Pekin area. Thus, one of the goals of the chamber's strategic plan is Business Advocacy – to be the voice of the Pekin business community.

The Chamber's Board of Directors authored the current Legislative Agenda to provide chamber members with a policy platform based on current trends and member feedback. It focuses on seven specific areas that have a direct impact on the vibrancy of the local business environment:
  1. Taxes and Fees
  2. Labor/Employment
  3. Transportation
  4. Infrastructure
  5. Education and Workforce Development
  6. Good Government
  7. Economic Development
The agenda document also includes background information on the issues and contact information for city, county, state and federal elected leaders. You can dowload the agenda here.
