Growth in local employment, along with increases in personal and business income is essential to the economic well-being of the community. The Chamber is committed to ensuring that local employers remain strong and competitive, and that new businesses are attracted to, and created within, our region.
The Chamber is also committed to the improvement of community attributes that materially influence decisions by employers and employees to locate and remain in the community, including the quality of health care, educational achievement, school district test scores, public safety and other factors.
These efforts should be focused on the goal of ensuring Walnut Creek is the regional retail, office, medical and innovation hub of Contra Costa County.
The Chamber serves as the voice of business in advocating for policies and programs which create an environment in which business can thrive and expand. As part of our advocacy efforts, the Chamber has identified the following areas that we believe are critical to that environment and, therefore, require active monitoring and engagement on behalf of our members.
