Public Policy

The Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce is the voice of business in the public policy arena. Through the efforts of the Board, Government Affairs Committee, members and Chamber staff, we educate elected officials and policy makers about the ways in which they can work with the business community to encourage workforce and increase prosperity in our communities. 

Working with our regional, state and national partners, we will advocate for public policy outcomes that strengthen our economy, drive additional investment, reduce the regulatory burden, foster innovation and create new jobs. We will bring our influence and ideas to bear on legislation, regulation and policies that affect our members' ability to compete and win in the global economy.

Our Public Policy Priorities include:
