Legislative Agenda

The Chamber’s Board of Directors, with the assistance of the Government Affairs Committee presents the following 2016 – 2017 Legislative Agenda to inform our members about the issues the Chamber will be monitoring and advocating for in 2016 – 2017. It should be noted that this list is not all inclusive, and may be modified during the period. We encourage you to submit additional information/suggested positions to the Chamber’s Government Affairs Committee for consideration at its quarterly meetings which are open to all members.

Providing Increased Opportunities for Growth for Small Business

Small businesses create two out of every three jobs in Florida. In order to help small businesses grow, we support programs such as the American Express Small Business Saturday Program, which encourages shoppers to support small business not only daily but on Small Business Saturday which is November 26, 2016. We also support Florida’s Small Business Development Network, which provides guidance to start-ups and first stage businesses.

City of Coral Springs

Work with City Staff on various issues as they arise to enhance the region and advocate for our member businesses. With our chamber moving into the new city hall in the fall of 2017, we feel that more and more issue will arise as our visibility is at the forefront and the front door of the new city hall.
