  • Government Relations Committee:

    This is a joint committee of the Petoskey Regional and Charlevoix Area Chambers of Commerce.  The committee has existed for many years to heighten awareness and advocate for issues at the local and state levels that impact area businesses.  The committee does, from time to time, take stances on key issues.  They also host events with area lawmakers, organize candidate forums, and work in partnership with the Northern Michigan Chamber Alliance.
