As the voice of the Battle Creek Area business community, the Battle Creek Area Chamber of Commerce is committed to promoting legislation that will improve our business climate and positively impact our growing economy. Creating a pro-business climate that fosters healthy and vibrant growth is critical to the quality of life enjoyed by our community. Maintaining this quality of life is a shared responsibility that requires the cooperation of our federal and state legislatures, local governing bodies, and Chamber members.
The Battle Creek Area Chamber of Commerce serves as the community’s advocate for business at the local, state and federal levels, representing the combined strength of our diverse industry sectors. We offer numerous opportunities for business leaders to influence civic, social, and business initiatives that support community growth. Our quarterly Governmental Affairs Breakfast gives our members the chance to dialog with our community's state and federal legislators. Our Government Affairs Committee vigorously studies issues and identifies, prioritizes and recommends policy to our Board of Directors for those issues that affect our local economy, business environment and quality of life. Our special legislative events allow our members to hear from our U.S. Senators and Representatives, and stay on top of important business and civic priorities.

Collaborating with the Brookings Institution and building on the work of the Great Lakes Commission and other regional groups, the chambers are recommending federal adoption of a strategic cluster of projects that will put thousands of people immediately back to work and will also fuel the region’s longer term economic transformation. The most immediate recommendations revolve around transportation and watershed restoration projects. A list of those projects is available. In total, the initiatives recommended by the chambers will result in well over $100 billion long term economic benefit to the region and nation, as well as hundreds of thousands of jobs.
