GOVERNMENT AFFAIRS & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

The CRCC is a business-led, problem-solver and advocacy organization working in partnership with regional business leaders to promote a vibrant economy. The CRCC, through a vetting process with the Government Affairs Committee, advocates on local, state and federal legislation critical to the continued improvement of the region and state's business climate and sustained economic development.

In addition, through strategic alliances, CRCC works with the business community to form coalitions to address specific community issues that impact business. These coalitions analyze issues and identify comprehensive business best-practice models that facilitate a healthy local and regional business environment.
