Chamber Advocacy and Positions
The San Rafael Chamber of Commerce believes that a healthy business community is invaluable to the community as a whole. The Chamber tracks local, state and federal issues impacting business and maintains close contact with city, county and state legislators to promote beneficial business legislation and discourage detrimental regulations.
The Chamber participates in monthly meetings with San Rafael's Mayor and city staff. The Governmental Affairs Committee tracks issues impacting business -- from taxation to workers' compensation and employer mandates. For more information about the Chamber’s Governmental Affairs Committee contact Joanne Webster in the Chamber office at (415) 454-4163 ext 101.
