Government Relations Committee
Serving on the Government Relations Committee is the easiest way to get involved with our advocacy efforts. The Advocacy Committee meets on the 4th Monday of every month at noon in the Spartanburg Area Chamber of Commerce board room. We encourage any Chamber member with an interest in business issues to attend these meetings. The meeting agenda includes updates from our local, state and federal officials; pending legislation that affects business; and plays a key role in helping the Chamber develop its legislative agenda for each legislative session at the S.C. Statehouse.
