Issue Briefs

Issue Briefs

Issue Briefs are designed to provide clear, substantive and objective information to Chamber members on relevant and timely topics. These briefs are thoroughly researched and vetted by Chamber staff, Issues Research Council, Issues Management Council, the Chamber’s Executive Committee and ultimately brought to the Board of Directors for review prior to distribution to all Chamber members.

Issue Briefs are fluid documents, meaning that they may be updated several times as the Chamber tracks the issue.
