    The Chamber’s Government Affairs Committee is the group which reviews legislation of importance to business at the local, regional state and federal level. The committee recommends position statements to the Chamber Board of Directors. Once adopted, the Chamber is then able to take positions on issues, issue press releases, give public comment, write letters, and otherwise engage to educate legislators, members, and the public about the legislation. The group also plans candidate forums, and other topics of legislative interest.  Chairman for the 2017-2018 year is Jimmy Townsend of Townsend Realty.  Contact Jenny@FayBiz.com for more information on becoming a member of this committee or submitting items of interest for consideration.
