The Boise Metro Chamber of Commerce has contracted Sarah Bettwieser, owner of Cygnet, LLC, to lead government affairs efforts for the upcoming legislative session. Sarah has been contracted to advocate for nearly 1,900 business community members in the metro area in her new role with the Boise Metro Chamber.
“Sarah is one of the most respected political influencers in the State,” said Boise Metro Chamber President and CEO Bill Connors. “We are thrilled to have Sarah on our side as we work with the Idaho legislature to keep our state one of the most business-friendly states in the nation,” Connors said.
Bettwieser is an Idaho native with more than a decade of legislative experience in health care, telecommunications, insurance, banking, finance and other business issues. She is a graduate of Boise State University with a degree in business administration. In addition to her work in government affairs, Sarah served as the Executive Director of the Idaho Governor’s Cup Scholarship Fund from 2015-2019, where she worked to secure roughly a million dollars annually in scholarships and donations.
“I am thrilled for the opportunity to assist the Boise Chamber in advancing meaningful policy measures on behalf of Idaho's business community,” Bettwieser said. “I look forward to working alongside the Chamber's leadership team and membership to inform policymakers of the critical function the Chamber plays in making Idaho a desired place for businesses to operate.”
