Public Policy Committee:  Gives members a voice in public policy matters on the local, state and federal levels.  The Committee allows EBL members to interact with decision makers and public officials and to have an impact on issues important to today’s young professionals.  The Committee works in conjunction with the Chamber’s Public Policy Committee to develop policy positions and advocate for their implementation.

All members of Emerging Business Leaders are welcomed and encouraged to participate on a committee. If you are interested in becoming more involved or joining a committee, please contact us and let us know.
