Member Testimonials: Advocacy

As part of our mission to support a thriving private sector economy, LCRCC provides a voice to Chamber member businesses in policy discussions at the State House.  Our three person Government Affairs team spends the entirety of the Legislative Session in Montpelier advocating for the interests of member businesses.  As members of LCRCC, business owners are invited to discuss concerns with our Government Affairs team so that we can go to work for you on policy while you focus on running your business.  Here’s what some of our members had to say about our efforts to represent them during the session this year:

 

“The LCRCC Government Affairs Team was quick to engage stakeholders on the cloud tax, providing information and opportunities for those affected by the proposal to engage with legislators.”
– Ted Adler
President, Union Street Media

 

“The LCRCC Advocacy team’s years of experience and consistent presence in the State House lends itself to a thorough understanding of issues that affect the Vermont economy, as well as the capacity to act on those issues.”
– Cairn Cross
Co-Founder, Fresh Tracks Capital

 

“With many businesses such as ours, there may be risks of unintended consequences of well-intended legislation. We found it helpful to be plugged into the collaborative work LCRCC’s advocacy team is doing with others in Montpelier – to stay aware of what’s happening and help our voices be heard.”
– Brett Smith
Partner, Fuse Marketing

 

LCRCC provides many events and opportunities throughout the year for business owners to voice their concerns, but members are always encouraged to reach out individually by email, phone or in person.  Contact Austin Davis at [email protected] or (802) 863-3489 x228 to get your voice heard.
