Government Affairs Committee (GAC)<- back
The GAC monitors legislative activity that can impact business on the county, state and federal levels. Its members review issues, discuss pending legislation and make recommendations to the CBRCC’s board of directors regarding positions that may be taken to support or oppose same. The GAC also keeps the partnership informed of legislative or regulatory activity and issues calls to action, when necessary. Each year, the GAC develops the CBRCC’s legislative priorities and works with Brevard’s other three Chambers to assemble a county-wide legislative agenda that is presented to the Brevard delegation of the FL House and Senate and other members, as appropriate.

Business Voice will host a Candidate Training Program May 3rd and 4th, 2019. The purpose of the training program is to recruit pragmatic leaders for our community and help them understand how to run a successful campaign. The 2017 inaugural class had 14 participants, 8 of whom have since taken the step to run for office and 5 have been elected. The agenda for the training can be seen at www.businessvoicepac.com/candidate-training/
The GAC is open to all partners. Those interested in government affairs or whose roles within their organizations include legislative advocacy or knowledge are welcome.
First Friday of each month at 8:00 AM at one of the CBRCC offices.
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 important to the collective membership.
