Business Advocacy

Business flourishes in communities with a favorable business environment. Many things contribute to a positive business environment: the tax rate, the regulatory environment and the ease and speed of working with public bodies. Other factors contribute to a favorable environment, as well: the availability of a trained and skilled workforce; an infrastructure system that allows traffic to flow smoothly and safely; and a communication system that provides access to markets throughout the world. Every day, the Monroe Chamber of Commerce works as a catalyst for change to improve the business climate and to establish an environment in which our businesses thrive.
