As an organization dedicated to the economic well-being of McLennan County, the Waco Chamber of Commerce actively seeks to promote policies that are conducive to the further development of this region. The goal of our public policy initiative is to inform, educate, engage and advocate for the Greater Waco business community regarding relevant public policy.
Public Policy Committee
The Public Policy Committee provides a voice for Chamber members in economic, legislative and policy issues that impact the community and economic development. The role of the committee is to be a liaison for our business community with local, state and federal officials and various government entities. Along with the Executive Committee of the Board of Directors, current members of the Public Policy Committee include:
The Waco Chamber serves the vibrant and growing heart of Central Texas as the voice for business, with over 1,500 member businesses representing over 65,000 jobs. Each year, the Public Policy Committee will survey the Chamber’s membership and engage in dialogue with legislators to identify a priority list of issues that will be tracked. Individual members are invited to propose policy issues on behalf of their business or industry for consideration within the scope of the Chamber’s interests.
Every year, the Public Policy Committee develops a Legislative Priority Agenda at both the state and federal levels which serve as a public policy guide to inform our members, elected and appointed officials, and the community-at-large of the position of the Waco Chamber on issues that impact business in Greater Waco and Central Texas.
