The Longview Chamber of Commerce represents the interests of business with government.
The Business Advocacy Committee meets regularly to help form timely and effective legislative agendas at the local, state, and federal level.
The Business Advocacy Committee also assists in the planning of several advocacy related events:
- Elected Officials Reception: A networking hour, once a year, that puts you shaking hands with our local elected officials.
- Texas Prosperity Project: These pages are designed to give you the information and tools you need to make it to the polls and cast an informed vote. We've included voter registration and absentee ballot information and forms for every state in the union, and the District of Columbia. We've included tools to locate and contact your elected officials. And, as candidates file for office and votes that matter are cast we'll present candidate guides and voting records.
- LongviewVotes.com: up-to-date information on advocacy efforts. Plus, write your national, state and local representative about legislation with the click of a button.
- Candidate Forums: Get to know the candidates and their issues. The chamber provides candidate forums for contested city and county races.
- East Texas Coalition: We head to Austin and Washington D.C. as an East Texas Region meeting face-to-face with our elected officials on the issues that matter most to your business.
