The Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce has a proven track record of advocating for the business community at the local, city, state and federal levels of government. This is achieved through a tireless dedication to the economic development of Brooklyn, and regular interaction with elected officials. Our aggressive programming combines research, as well as government and community relations.
Each year, we conduct an annual membership survey about issues affecting the local economy and business environment. The information gathered from this survey helps the Chamber shape its positions on key issues, as well as prioritize its advocacy agenda to plan the annual state and federal legislative visits.
Our Government Affairs Committee works to advocate for improved economic conditions within the borough. This group also works to enhance the interaction between Brooklyn Chamber members and public officials.
Through its various committees and working groups, the Brooklyn Chamber conducts strategic outreach to community stakeholders, including neighborhood-based organizations, local businesses, nonprofits, economic development organizations, and cultural organizations to establish partnerships. Particular emphasis is placed on outreach to traditionally underserved demographics with a stated local objective.
