Vice-Chair: J. Alan Fagan
One of the most important benefits of being a member of MPCC is having an organization larger than your own single business representing you and advocating on your behalf.
MPCC serves as a leading business voice on public policy. When the voice of the total business community is heard, more often than not, it supports a competitive business climate and can influence the outcome of critical decision-making that impacts commerce. The Government Affairs Committee ("GAC") plays a key role to determine which issues those are and, when needed, can convene a coalition to speak together. This makes MPCC more relevant to its members.
By having a strong role in advocacy, MPCC staff and volunteer leaders do the day-to-day work that many business people simply do not have time to do. Many members — especially those small businesses — do not have the time to keep up on the issues — much less speak out on them. The Chamber provides a great service to these members by being their eyes and ears — and their voice.
The Government Affairs Committee meets on the second Wednesday of every month. For more information about how to get involved, contact J. Alan Fagan at 831.440.8503.
