Standing up for Business
Do you believe in business? We do!
For over 100 years we've been committed to helping businesses large and small succeed.
The Longview Chamber of Commerce is committed to promoting and protecting the interests of our Longview area businesses through investigating and supporting legislative initiatives at the local, state, and federal levels. Combining our local voice, 1100 strong, with other chambers across the state and nation, leads to successful and impactful representation.
Key areas that this Chamber stands behind are outlined in the policy statement section and cover: Employment Relations, Economic Development, Education, Energy and Environmental, General Business, Health Care, Immigration, Taxes and Spending, Tort Reform, and Transportation. To address these issues and provide face-to-face interaction and education, the Chamber hosts Advocacy Summits bringing in legislative representation and subject matter experts on the local, state, and federal levels. Lead by our Advocacy Committee, these programs address issues impacting business and currently residing on legislative dockets.
The Chamber continues sending area leaders and elected officials to Austin and Washington D.C. to be the voice of our members. To ensure members have a voice with their elected officials, the Chamber create grass root campaigns providing members an avenue to directly contact their elected officials on issues and legislation. To further advance issues, the Chamber formed and maintains a general issues PAC.
