OneVoice Task Forces

CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD THE TASK FORCES' PROPOSED PRIORITIES

 

Play a part in shaping state and federal legislation by joining a task force to help create the OneVoice Regional Legislative Agenda. The agenda is developed annually through the collaboration of more than 500 individuals representing hundreds of businesses and more than 75 chambers of commerce, municipalities, counties and economic development organizations.

Task forces will meet throughout August and September to generate policy positions and legislative priorities for consideration on the agenda. Later this fall, attendees at the virtual OneVoice Regional Legislative Summit will deliberate and vote on which of the task forces' priorities to include in the 2021 agenda. The top priority from each task force will automatically be added to the agenda.

To ensure the perspective of your business or industry is included in the creation of the agenda, please ask a representative from your organization to join one or more task forces. Please note that only Chamber members and regional partners may take part in the OneVoice task forces and summit.

All task force meetings will take place virtually via Zoom. To join a task force and register your attendance at upcoming meetings. click the links below. Advance registration is required to attend task force meetings.
