Advocate

Government Relations Committee

Our Board of Directors Government Relations Committee identifies areas of concern and advocacy priorities for the Hudson Chamber. It helps form or support legislative policy with our statewide partners while recognizing the importance of policy work in our county and various municipalities. The Hudson Chamber is the voice of our membership, advocating for the business community and for individual members, where appropriate. We recognize that members cannot accomplish alone what we can accomplish together. We pledge to keep our members, elected and appointed officials informed of our agenda.

Priorities

As the voice of the business community, the Hudson Chamber promotes economic growth and development and advocates for the business community. Our three priority issues are:

car Transportation

Transportation is a top issue we hear among businesses, commuters and residents alike. For the business community, we need to ensure the free flow of commerce and easy access for commuters to support our workforce and promote sustainable economic growth. Additionally, we recognize the need to balance quality of life issues.

car Workforce Development

Employers of all sizes and sectors struggle with identifying appropriately skilled workers to help their organizations succeed, from mom and pop restaurants and retailers to multinational corporations. We are committed to connecting the workforce with our member employers for the health of the business community and to upskilling our residents to qualify them for good local jobs.

car Tourism and Placemaking

Hudson County, NJ, is a great place to live, work, stay, eat, shop and enjoy. Our goal is to share this message with visitors and residents alike who have so many choices living in our dynamic and exciting communities. We are committed to creating economic value for our hospitality and retail sectors, keeping dollars local, creating visibility by spotlighting our members and communities, and showcasing our many attractions and activities.

If you have an advocacy issue or topic of concern that you need or would like to promote, please reach out to President and CEO Emory Edwards at president@hudsonchamber.org. As a member-focused Chamber, our goal is to help you achieve your goals.
