Advocacy

The St. Bernard Chamber of Commerce serves as an advocate for St. Bernard Parish. While the St. Bernard Chamber does not endorse any specific candidate, philosophy, or political party, we do monitor our leadership and relevant legislation to ensure that the interests of St. Bernard Parish are protected at the local, state and federal levels. Additionally, we support our regional partners in protecting the interests and opportunities for our entire region.

 

One of our most effective tools for change is coalition building, and over the years we have worked hard to develop meaningful relationships with other regional Chambers of Commerce, Business Councils, Parish Governments, Economic Development entities, etc.

 

The St. Bernard Chamber of Commerce primarily engages in advocacy via Letters of Resolution and the facilitation of events that promote the political awareness and education of our membership and community. Our positions are informed by member committees and approved by the Board in accordance with our mission.
