Council of Government Affairs

Your Voice in Winston-Salem Government & Beyond

Through the Council of Government Affairs, the Chamber is your voice in the halls of government at every level. From local Winston-Salem government ordinances to federal regulations, we work to make sure you are represented on issues that affect local commerce and its interaction with the community. With resources and news about your Winston-Salem city government and more, we also provide you with the information you need to become informed advocates.

The mission of the Committee is threefold: to advocate for public policy that is in the best interest of business; to encourage more efficient, less costly government; and to protect and educate members on key government issues relating to business.
