Chambers Showcase Commitment to Civility

In the aftermath of election day, with deep political dives and polarization, we believe there is a role for chambers of commerce to promote patience and civility. Here are a few examples of chambers that are working to reduce polarization and improve civil discourse. Share your chamber’s initiatives with me at wburns@acce.org.

  • The Salt Lake Chamber, along with the signatories from the business community, issued a statement last week promoting patience and civility regarding the election.
  • Greater Des Moines Partnership CEO Jay Byers, CCE, IOM, co-authored an op-ed outlining the urgent need for communities to address big challenges with civility, decency and respect.
  • The Leavenworth-Lansing Area Chamber launched the Indivisible Initiative, which seeks to repair the community’s divisions through intentional acts of compassion, kindness and respect.
  • The Greater Naples Chamber’s Leadership Collier Foundation Alumni Association is making civility a priority and exploring how leaders can heal division through civil discourse.
  • Chamber of Commerce for Greater Philadelphia President & CEO Rob Wonderling sent a message to his membership, drawing inspiration from the words of his incoming chair and reaffirming the chamber’s commitment to leading with civility and collaboration.
  • As a result of the deterioration of civility in public discourse, the San Luis Obispo Chamber created a code of civilityto govern behavior at candidate forums and similar events.
