Acting as a strong advocate for our business community is a core function of the Anacortes Chamber of Commerce. Our Governmental Affairs (GA) Division leads all of the Chamber’s business advocacy efforts at the local, county, regional, state, and federal levels. The Chamber multiplies the voice of its 450 members even further by joining with other business advocacy organizations to propose, advocate on behalf of and support government policies and procedures that enhance the business community and allow it to succeed in an increasingly competitive environment.
The focus of this section of our web site is to provide members with a one-stop shop for their GA needs. Users are a click away from a full page of links to Government Officials, other Governmental Links, a library of Chamber Position Papers, relevant News items, the Chamber’s Legislative Agenda for the coming year, and a linkage to a state Legislative Report Card, linking state lawmakers to their voting records on specific bills.
