2018 ACE: Grand Award
The objective of this Governmental Affairs Strategic Plan is to develop, strategize and implement a grassroots effort to defeat harmful legislation being considered during the 85th Texas Legislative Session targeted at Chambers of Commerce receiving public funding. House Bill 793 (HB 793) & Senate Bill 408 (SB 408) directly target Chambers that have public-private partnerships (PPP) with governmental entities. This legislation would expose the Chamber's proprietary information and jeopardize sensitive, competitive corporate recruiting inquiries and proposals.
