Advocating for local businesses

Since 1939, the Greater St. Charles County Chamber of Commerce has worked to create a strong local economy by actively promoting local businesses not just through networking options, but also through advocacy and education of business-related issues to help businesses of all sizes stay informed on the issues that matter.

While the Chamber has many networking opportunities with various annual events and a growing membership base of over 750 businesses, according to President and CEO Scott Tate, something that makes the GSTCCC stand out is the emphasis on advocacy and pro-business legislative measures both locally and nationally. 

“The true reason why Chambers really exist is to be a voice for business, and to have people advocate on behalf of those businesses for issues that impact them, whether they are local or federal,” Scott said.

GSTCCC has worked with local businesses on workforce issues, transportation, community health initiatives, education and economic development. The website also provides a list of tracked bills and public policy positions.

The efforts also made GSTCCC a finalist for the 2018 Chamber of the Year award, a prestigious recognition presented by the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives, which includes 8,000 professionals from 1,300 chambers of commerce, including 93 of the top 100 U.S. metro areas.

Membership also comes with benefits like committee work, customer referrals from the many inquiries which come to the Chamber office, the monthly newsletter with advertising opportunities and membership meetings.
