Government & Public Affairs Committee

Each month the Greater Vancouver Chamber of Commerce's Governmental & Public Affairs Committee (PAC) gathers to discuss issues that impact business in Southwest Washington. The G&PAC is a forum where City, State and Federal topics are on the table. The G&PAC serves in an advisory capacity to the president and the public affairs staff. The committee is responsible for reviewing and recommending actions or positions to the board of directors. The G&PAC also plays a role in organizing Public Affairs events like: The Legislative Review Luncheon and Legislative Outlook Breakfast. Once a year GVCC's PAC, the Columbia River Economic Development Council (CREDC) and Identity Clark County (ICC) work together to create their Shared Legislative Agenda document that is the strong, unified voice of the top issues that affect local business.
