  • Government Affairs

    Our Government Affairs Committee monitors and educates interested parties from within the South Shore Chamber and the membership at large (as appropriate) on Federal, state and local government initiatives, regulation, mandates that impact the South Shore businesses, industries. When necessary, the committee takes the pulse of the organization with respect to such issues. As a matter of policy, neither the Government Affairs Committee nor the Chamber itself advocate in support of or against business issues that may evoke mixed feelings on behalf of our membership. However, in some cases and with the Board's permission (via vote) the Chamber may take  a position for or against a policy.

    Examples of ot topics include:

    • Family Medical Leave Act
    • Raising the Minimum Wage
    • Heatlth Care Reform
    • Affordable Care Act

    The group also brings political speakers in to meet with the group and asks that intereste parties sign up to receive emails on topics of interest though our Communications tab.
