Public Policy & Advocacy
The San Joaquin County Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (SJCHCC) recognizes that for many of our members, keeping track of the latest legislative developments can be overwhelming. As a member of SJCHCC, you will receive information and updates on our legislative advocacy at the local, regional, state and federal levels of government. Each month, the SJCHCC Government Relations Committee and Board of Directors meet to represent local business and member interests to government. SJCHCC works closely with elected officials at all levels ensuring representation for our members in every way possible.
With the help of our members and by being an active member of the California Hispanic Chambers of Commerce, the Government Relations Committee attempts to proactively track issues that might impact business at the local, state and federal levels. We aim to inform our members of these matters through our e-newsletter and recommend how you can take action to ensure your voice is heard.
The SJCHCC Government Relations Committee addresses issues including public policy, ordinances, zoning, ballot measures, permits, regulatory issues, development projects, and many other key topics. We periodically meet with elected officials, candidates, city and county staff and decision makers to communicate the interests of our constituency.
Have an Issue or Concern
We want to hear from you. SJCHCC aims to identify key issues that impact our business owners, but your help in identifying items of concern or how we can effectively advocate and spur economic development within San Joaquin County is valuable.
Whether you have a permitting issue or are concerned about bigger regional issues- you are highly encouraged to contact the San Joaquin County Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and let us know how we can help you.
