Business Advocacy

Lead in the creation of an environment in which our businesses thrive

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 by advocating and serving as the leading voice of business for northeast Louisiana.
