Chehalem Valley Chamber of Commerce
Government Affairs Committee
The Chehalem Valley Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee monitors and takes positions on local and state legislative issues, candidates for office and is an advocate on behalf of chamber member businesses. In addition to advocacy, the Government Affairs Committee educates the electorate regarding upcoming elections, including co-sponsoring candidate forums and providing written questions and answers from candidates running for local office, in addition to other educational opportunities for members to stay informed. To be endorsed by the Chehalem Valley Chamber of Commerce, candidates undergo interviews with members of the CVCC Government Affairs Committee, and must be approved by a supermajority vote in favor by the CVCC Board of Directors. Given this, candidate endorsements happen very infrequently.
The Chehalem Valley Chamber of Commerce is proud to cosponsor candidate forums with the Newberg City Club & George Fox University Civility Project.
