The Columbus Chamber Is Your Business Advocate

Through resilient policy advocacy, the Columbus Chamber of Commerce engages with civic leaders and public officials on behalf of the business community. Our efforts help ensure economic prosperity and equity to advance business opportunities throughout the region. The Columbus Chamber frequently monitors public policy, and when appropriate, takes positions on legislation that may either positively impact business or impede on a business’s ability to function or operate.
