Agenda to serve as blueprint to support strong business climate for the region

The North Central Massachusetts Chamber of Commerce unveiled its Public Policy Agenda for the new fiscal year outlining the Chamber’s legislative priorities on issues important to businesses and the advancement of North Central Massachusetts. It was reviewed and approved by the Chamber’s Government Affairs Committee and the Board of Directors.

As the Chamber advocates on behalf of businesses across the region, the agenda will serve as a blueprint outlining a platform which builds upon the area’s competitive advantages. The agenda is focused around six priority areas: economic competitiveness, small business, manufacturing, education, transportation, and real estate.

“Our Public Policy Agenda is focused on supporting a strong business climate while encouraging an already engaged business community to participate in the efforts of important, pro-business policy issues,” said Roy Nascimento, President and CEO, North Central Massachusetts Chamber of Commerce. “As we recently learned in our Workforce Development Study, the collaboration of business, government and community leaders is critical to ensure North Central Massachusetts remains a great place to live, work and grow a business, and this agenda is an important roadmap to push those efforts forward.”

“We have experienced successful advocacy efforts over the past several years, and our 2023 agenda builds off of that success,” said Travis Condon, Public Affairs Manager, North Central Massachusetts Chamber of Commerce. “As we continue to advance the issues that matter most to our members in North Central, we look forward to engaging with elected officials to be another voice to help our local businesses be as successful as possible.”
