The cornerstone of the Chamber's mission is to advocate on behalf of our members and to communicate the views of the business community to our elected officials. The Government Relations division, through it’s Local Government and Legislative committees identifies, prioritizes and recommends policy to our Board of Directors for those issues that affect our local economy, business environment and quality of life in the Daytona Beach Region.
Each year we develop a list of City, County and State priorities for our focus and communicate these issues regularly at meetings, events and in conversations with our elected officials at all levels.
Find out our philosophy and positions on many issue areas that are of importance to the business community, Our Where We Stand document is updated annually. Looking for the Chamber’s support on an issue? Complete the Policy Analysis Form for consideration.
