Engagement in public policy and the lawmaking process is an important part of how the Chamber supports its members. If you are doing business on Cape Cod, the Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce is your voice in government. As the Cape’s only regional business advocacy organization, we address issues of concern to your business on the local, state and federal levels. We work to ensure that government considers Cape business objectives and viewpoints, keep members informed on pressing issues, and coordinate political action as bills move through legislative bodies.
The Cape region's greatest economic threats include: clean and healthy water resources, cross-canal transportation access, and adequate workforce housing. The region’s greatest economic opportunities include: full realization of the Blue Economy, quality public and private education, a top tier healthcare system and “healthiest communities” designation, and a strong entrepreneurial spirit.
