GKCC Issue Advocacy Statement and Process
The Greater Keene Chamber of Commerce is an organization whose mission is to advance the commercial, industrial, educational, cultural, recreational and general welfare of Keene and the surrounding area. From time to time there are issues that arise in the community that would have an impact upon this mission. In these circumstances it is appropriate for the Chamber to take a public position.
The process of determining which issues the GKCC will offer a public statement on is as follows:
The issue would first be brought to the President or an Executive Committee member.
The Executive Committee would review and analyze the issue. If there is consensus, then the issue would be brought to the full Board for discussion and decision.
The Executive Committee would use its best efforts to gather and report information on both sides of the issue.
