Positively influencing the decisions of Florida’s lawmakers requires significant funding, pro-active grassroots mobilization, expertise on the issues and, most importantly, strength in numbers. The Florida Chamber’s unique combination of an experienced and connected lobbying team, the state’s most extensive grassroots network and the business community’s most aggressive political action program are what makes us the leading voice of the business community and the driving force in the fight to secure Florida’s future.
Free enterprise isn’t free, and what our state needs most is a united business community that is focused on job creation and willing to engage the opposition at every level. During each legislative session and election season, the Florida Chamber stands behind strong, pro-business candidates and fights for the issues that matter to you – issues like job creation, streamlined government regulation and increasing Florida origin exports.
Business leaders participate in:
- Board of Governors – Florida’s leading companies regularly receive legislative and political briefings, and also have the opportunity to meet directly with state leaders, including members of the Florida Cabinet, heads of state agencies, and members of Florida’s Congressional Delegation as they work together to pass the Florida Business Agenda and champion free enterprise.
- Small Business Council – Florida’s small businesses are essential to the recovery of the state’s economy. The Small Business Council works directly with state and national leaders to pass important legislation like the Small Business Credit Initiative that will help increase access to capital and create jobs and bring prosperity to Florida’s small businesses.
- International Business Committee – Businesses whose interests extend internationally work to advocate free trade agreements and international issues in both Tallahassee and Washington, D.C.
- Join local, state and national leaders to address critical business issues at The Future of Florida Forum, Capitol Days, Insurance Summit, International Days and other regional and statewide Florida Chamber events.
