Government Affairs Committee
Your Voice in Winston-Salem Government & Beyond
Through the Government Affairs Committee, the Chamber is your voice in the halls of government at every level.
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.
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.
Impact Hour Series
Impact Hour, sponsored by Truliant Federal Credit Union, is an initiative designed to connect our members with leaders from across Winston-Salem and Forsyth County. It provides members the chance to think, brainstorm, question and advise on issues that are most important to them. Elected officials from all sectors of the local, state, and federal level participate in the series. Check the Chamber’s Events Calendar for upcoming dates.
