Any member may attend Committee meetings and provide input. Beginning June 2012, meetings will be held the first Monday of each month, at 12 noon at Grove Street Brewhouse, 233 S First St, in Shelton.
The Committee responds to concerns expressed by business and considers input from Chamber membership and affected stakeholders. The Committee may recommend public policy positions on local, state and federal issues to the Board of Trustees; however, the committee may continue to work through business issues up to the point of requiring a public policy position by the Chamber.
The Committee is appointed by the Board of Trustees and is a broad-based committee representing the diverse sectors of the Chamber’s membership.The committee is made up of eight voting members and a committee chair appointed by the Chamber Board President. The eight voting committee members are required to submit an application and are appointed by the Board of Trustees.
