State Chamber Difference

State Chamber Difference

Local chambers are the lifeblood of the communities they serve and, especially here in Michigan, they do good work. Most local chambers are focused primarily on regional issues and many are involved in area economic development activities.

The state chamber has a different focus and mission. The primary purpose of the Michigan Chamber is to be a strong advocate for job providers at the state and federal level through the legislative, political and legal action.

Located in downtown Lansing, just four blocks from the State Capitol, the Michigan Chamber’s Business Advocacy Team consists of five full­time lobbyists who work hard every day to improve the business climate for small business, medium sized companies and major corporations all across the state. With guidance from our 84­-member Board of Directors and approximately 260 volunteer leaders who serve on the Chamber’s four policy committees, the Michigan Chamber serves as a powerful voice for Michigan employers.
