Government Affairs Committee (GAC)<- back
The GAC monitors legislative activity that can impact business on the local, state, and federal levels. Its members review issues, discuss pending legislation, and make recommendations to the CBRCC’s Board of Directors regarding positions that support or oppose the same. The GAC also keeps the partnership informed of legislative or regulatory activity, and issues a call to action when necessary. Each year, the GAC develops the CBRCC’s legislative priorities. The GAC also works with Brevard’s other three Chambers to assemble a county-wide legislative agenda, later presented to the Brevard delegation of the Florida House, Senate, and other members, as deemed appropriate during an annual advocacy trip to Tallahassee.

The GAC is open to all partners. Those interested in government affairs or roles within their organizations include legislative advocacy or knowledge are welcome.
This meeting is held on the first Friday of each month at 8:00 AM at the Merritt Island office.
Monthly meetings feature speakers and topics relevant to legislative issues and activity. Each legislative session, members are invited to join a team comprised of Brevard’s four Chambers of Commerce (Government Affairs partners and any other interested parties) and travel to Tallahassee to advocate for issues relevant to the collective membership. This group also participates in the annual Brevard County Day at the State’s Capitol.
