Public Policy Council & Advocacy Page

Public Policy Council

The Public Policy Council is responsible with the task of monitoring legislative issues at all levels of government and staying in contact with elected officials and decision makers. The Advocacy Manager, along with the St. Petersburg Chamber, creates local, state and federal advocacy agendas that address legislative issues that have an effect on the business community. We'll keep you informed of relevant issues and events through our newsletter, and committee and council meetings.
