The Rutherford County Chamber of Commerce, Bellevue Harpeth Chamber of Commerce, Maury County Chamber and Economic Alliance and Nashville Area Chambers of Commerce joined together in an advocacy partnership which will allow their members to have a stronger voice in the Tennessee General Assembly.
Rutherford County Chamber of Commerce, Bellevue Harpeth Chamber of Commerce, Maury County Chamber and Economic Alliance and Nashville Area Chambers of Commerce members have access to Middle Tennessee Business Voice, an online tool administered by the Nashville Area Chamber which tracks legislative issues and facilitates communication with elected officials. Regional chamber members will also have the opportunity to participate in an annual policy survey that will inform the legislative agenda for the region’s business community. The regional legislative agenda is represented at the state capitol by resources provided by the Nashville Area Chamber.
The advocacy partnership covers the positions shared by the chambers on a wide range of business issues, which will be determined each January. Outside the area of legislative advocacy, each organization retains their own memberships and benefits. In addition, each organization will continue to have complete control over their own legislative positions.
