Influencing Policy. Solving Problems.
At city hall, in Calloway County, West Kentucky, Frankfort and at our nation's capitol - The Murray Calloway County Chamber wants to lead on issues that matter most to our members and their employees - like workforce development, transportation, taxes, quality of life, etc.
We provide opportunities for our members to influence civic, social and economic initiatives that support community growth. By engaging in our initiatives, your voice as a business owner or manager is heard.
Public Policy Surveys
Conducted annually, the Chamber's advocacy committee surveys members on public policy at the local, state and federal levels impacting you. Those results are then given to policy makers in the form of legislative priorities and feedback.
Held annually in December, the Legislative Preview breakfast serves to connect the Chamber's top investors with an intimate one-on-few setting with our State Representative, State Senator, and local business and community leaders. This breakfast is focused on the Chamber's public policy efforts and legislative priorities for the upcoming spring legislative session.
The West Kentucky Regional Chamber Alliance (WKRCA), a formal alliance of chambers of commerce in fourteen counties in far western Kentucky, was founded in 2008. Its purpose is to provide a unified voice for local businesses in the region and to serve as a catalyst for regional leadership and action, bringing together resources for legislative, educational, infrastructure and economic development advocacy.
Calloway to the Capitol
Held in February annually, Calloway to the Capitol (C2C), connects community leaders with policy and decision makers in Frankfort on issues impacting our local Murray-Calloway County community. This is a full day event with meetings with the Governor's office, Cabinet Officials, our State Senator and State Representative, and other key influencers.
