Advocacy

Advocating for Our Vibrant and Dynamic Business Community!

Advocacy is not a simple task to check off on a to-do list; it is an every-day endeavor, one we take pride in at our Chamber, and which we diligently pursue on your behalf.

We’re on Your Side

Locally:  No one knows City Hall and our local officials across greater Nashua better than our Chamber.  Our relationships with our local elected officials allow us to effectively represent companies when they need something done, and done fast. We’re proud of the fact that Nashua has very responsive elected officials on our Board of Aldermen and in our Mayor’s Office; we are happy to leverage our relationship with those officials, and with those from other towns around Nashua, communicating with them on your behalf when needed.

State-Wide: Out of the 60+ Chambers of Commerce across New Hampshire, we have the highest profile and strongest reputation at our State House.  We can say that because we are physically present in Concord every working day.  In addition to our staff, who posses strong legislative skills and connections, we are the only Chamber in New Hampshire that retains a three-person lobbying team throughout the year to help promote our needs with state officials. As a member of our Chamber, you and your company have access to our Chamber President and to our entire lobbying team – all of whom stand ready to help champion your cause.

Federally: In politics, just as in business, relationships matter.  Who you know, and the nature of your reputation, are what get you ahead.  Our Chamber is fortunate to have strong connections to our federal delegates, through relationships with the Congressman and Senators themselves and through weekly contact with the staff of our congressional representatives.  Whether your federal need requires the attention of Washington staff, or state-bound staff, we know the right person to call.  And we likely know that person on a first-name basis.

Our only political agenda is to effectively serve our members. No matter the party, official, or candidate, we’re on the front-lines fighting for what’s best for our business community and our quality of life. We work closely with our state’s leaders on both sides of the political aisle to advocate for Greater Nashua year-round, and rally our business leaders to champion for every aspect of business and economic health. Join us and make your voice heard!
