Policy Priorities





Local Advocacy – McLean County Chamber of Commerce


Our Chamber is the premier business organization in McLean County and serves as the leading voice of business on matters of public policy impacting the local economy. Strengthened by our Partners in Advocacy we advance local legislative priorities set annually by the Chamber Board of Directors. We do so by convening elected officials together with business leaders and advocating for priorities throughout the year.
