Don't miss our Bank of America Merrill Lynch Breakfast Series with Governer Maggie Hassen TUESDAY, APRIL 16, 7:30am-9am, The Sheraton Harborside.
The Greater Portsmouth Chamber of Commerce places a high priority on involvement in government affairs. Since elected officials are our "silent business partners," we strive to maintain a level of accountability and oversight into the activities of our elected business partners.
Each year, the Government Affairs Committee (GAC) reviews all legislation that has been submitted (typically over 1,000 bills) by legislators. As part of our review process, the Committee determines which bills merit involvement or monitoring by the Seacoast's business community. Some public policy issues require active involvement, such as oral testimony before a legislative committee, and other issues are simply monitored for the benefit of Chamber members.
Committee co-Chairs: Howard Altschiller, Seacoast Media Group, and Patrick Closson of McLane, Graf, Raulerson & Steve Marchand of UNH.
