The Business Advocacy Committee (BAC) assists the Sycamore Chamber of Commerce in being a more strategic advocate for its members in order to strengthen the economic vitality of area businesses and to enhance the quality of life in the community.
The BAC is charged with reviewing key business issues, evaluating their merits, determining the potential impact to Chamber members and the community, developing positions on said issues and presenting positions on said issues to the Chamber Board for input and/or approval.
The BAC will strive to be proactive in its work by anticipating issues and conducting due diligence in advance of critical deadlines.
The goal of our issue advocacy is to help shape public policy decisions and/or public opinion on critical issues to the best interest of the membership in order to strengthen the economic vitality of area businesses and to enhance the quality of life in the community.
