The Public Affairs Committee’s purpose is to represent Chamber members and the general business community at all levels of government to improve and sustain a favorable business climate. For more information on joining this committee, call Jakob Williamson at 256-237-3536 or email

The Chamber’s advocacy efforts aim to influence job creation, workforce development, education, small business, and adequate health care policies. Empowering our members through regular interaction with county and state legislators keeps them abreast of current local, state, and federal legislation. It encourages the community and the chamber members to mobilize to become a part of the democratic process. These efforts aid in ensuring accountability to the residents and business owners in Calhoun County and stimulating growth in all aspects of our community.
