At the heart of the Yuba Sutter Chamber of Commerce service to its members and the Yuba Sutter Community is the government affairs and political advocacy work it does on behalf of the business.
The mission of our Chamber, through its government affairs activities and political advocacy, is to represent and protect the interests of our business community. To this end, the Chamber monitors the issues and activities of local, state, and federal government and, when appropriate, take positions of support or opposition on behalf of the business.
At times, this can feel a little like moving mountains, but being the voice for our business community is where the magic happens. The Chamber received a call from a local business owner who was concerned about a discussion of a new Sutter County ordinance at the Sutter County Board of Supervisors meeting. The business owner expressed their frustration with not having the opportunity in advance to weigh in on the potential impacts to their business and to get a better understanding of what this ordinance could mean for their business. We called Sutter County to inquire about the details of the ordinance and expressed concern over the matter. Sutter County removed the discussion from the agenda and agreed to meet with the business owners, who will be impacted by this ordinance. The Chamber will facilitate the meeting.
The Chamber was delighted by Sutter County's response and their willingness and desire to hear from our local businesses on the matter. Sutter County's interest, like the Chamber, is to represent the Yuba-Sutter community in a way that supports and encourages a business-friendly environment. Their response displayed this, and we are eager to meet with them to discuss the matter in more detail.
The Chamber is here to help the Yuba-Sutter business community. We are the voice for business and encourage businesses to share their concerns when it comes to running their business with the Chamber. We cannot promise that we can move those mountains, but we do guarantee we will go to bat for you when it is in the best interest of your business and the community.
