As a CONVENER, ChamberWest brings Business, City, and Legislative Leaders to the same table in our Legislative Affairs Committee. This committee is a powerful force within the State of Utah that ADVOCATES on behalf of our BUSINESS COMMUNITY. Our Legislative Affairs Committee is comprised of subcommittees, each of them holding a piece of our puzzle.

During January – March legislative session, the committee reviews bills to identify those impacting business in our communities and then work to advocate for our members based on those positions. The committee meets with legislators weekly to expand relationships, offer professional opinions from industry, share positions on specific legislation, and provide a forum for legislators to communicate to business and civic leaders of bills in process. You can view a schedule of upcoming meetings at the bottom of this page. Scroll down to see what's gearing up for the 2024 Legislative Session.

During this process, our ChamberWest Legislative Affairs Committee used our Bill Tracker to keep track of proposed bills that could affect businesses and the impact they may have. You can see which bills have been Opposed or Supported by the business community in ChamberWest.
