The Policy Committee is made up of the Chairs of our Boise Metro Chamber Committees, Councils and Industry Boards and includes members of our Board of Advisors and Chamber Leadership. The Policy Committee meets each week during the legislative session, which is traditionally January through March. This committee helps to monitor legislation which affects businesses of all sizes, helps determine the need for advocacy efforts, and formulates position statements on notable issues and legislation. The committee works closely with the Chamber's Government Advocacy team to advocate for business-friendly state and federal policy.
This video describes the efforts of the collective group in 2022. The Policy Committee is Chaired by Tom Mortell, Co-Managing Partner of Hawley Troxell Ennis & Hawley, LLP. Special thanks to our video production partners, Light Bender Media, for producing this video.
