Discussing Legislative Issues
One of the core functions of the Chamber is to activate and educate members in public policy. To attain this, the Chamber established the Government Affairs Council (GAC).
Made up of a group of Chamber members interested in advocacy, the GAC meets monthly to discuss legislative issues impacting business in McMinnville, the State of Oregon and nationally.
Government Affairs Council Applications
Annually the GAC creates a legislative policy (click on the link) that outlines the areas of focus for the upcoming legislative year. The Council also makes recommendations to the Chamber Board of Directors in support of or against legislative issues.
To be considered for the GAC, please do one of the following:
McMinnville Area Chamber of Commerce
ATTN: Gioia Goodrum, President/CEO
417 NW Adams St.
McMinnville, Oregon 97128
Applications are presented to the Board of Directors for review and appointment to the GAC.
