Advocacy Efforts

At the Chamber, we advocate for the needs of business and ensure that the voice of business is heard.

We do this through:

  • getting involved in planning and zoning for the growth of the community
  • speaking on behalf of our members at City Council meetings in respect to pro-business issues
  • supporting pro-business initiatives (or working to defeat those that are not in the best interest of business)
  • polling members on their needs so that we may ensure their voice is heard on the local, state, and federal levels

While we represent a united voice of business for the Alameda area, when members want to add their individual voices to the issues, they can contact their elected officials in the following ways:
