Speak up for business this legislative session

By Chamber staff / Policy / February 8, 2019

During the 2019 legislative session, the Chamber will actively lobby on behalf of the business community to improve economic development and quality of life in Greater Oklahoma City–but the Chamber can’t act on its own. The Chamber also relies on its members to engage with legislators and help move the agenda of Oklahoma City’s growth forward.

In order to help you fully maximize your impact on the political process, the Chamber’s advocacy website, OKCBusinessAdvocate.com, allows you to easily identify your elected officials and the most effective ways to communicate with them. The site also contains the Chamber’s public policy priorities and updates on the progress of the Chamber’s lobbying efforts at the Capitol.

Throughout the legislative session, Chamber members can opt to receive “The Business Advocate” – an email newsletter featuring timely updates on the status of priority legislative issues. The Chamber also encourages business leaders to act as a grassroots advocate for issues that are important to the economic stability of the region.

Ways to speak up for your business:

  • Contact your elected officials and leaders at the state Capitol by phone, email, letter or an in-person visit. You can find contact information for all elected officials in the 2019 Public Policy Guide at OKCChamber.com/ppg
  • Stay informed on the issues. Visit OKCBusinessAdvocate.com to learn more about issues that will impact Oklahoma City businesses and sign up for “The Business Advocate” newsletter at that link.
  • Connect with the community. The Chamber’s events throughout the year are the perfect way to stay informed on the issues facing Oklahoma City while meeting legislators and other business leaders.

For more information about the Chamber’s advocacy efforts or the Business Advocacy Center, contact Derek Sparks, government relations manager, at dsparks@okcchamber.com or 297-8933.
