Advocacy

The Lake Champlain Chamber is the voice of Vermont business.  

Our advocacy team represents our 1,100 members at the local, state, and federal level.  During every legislative session, our team is at the State House every day tracking hundreds of pieces of legislation.  We send weekly updates to our membership to inform them of any potential impacts to their business and offer expert testimony on behalf of our members in committee. We also work outside of the legislative process to influence rulemaking and regulations, serve as an advocate for our members when engaging with agencies and departments, and engage in legal cases that impact our business community.

If you would like to engage with our advocacy team, please do not hesitate to reach out at [email protected], or schedule an appointment to chat with our Government Affairs Manager, Austin Davis.
