A pro-business climate is critical to the superior quality of life we enjoy in Mason-Deerfield and creates the gateway for growth and expansion of current and future businesses. Through the Government Affairs program, the Mason Deerfield Chamber develops local policy priorities and communicates the Chamber’s positions and top priorities on issues important to the area’s citizens and business community.
The Chamber serves as a lead advocate for business issues, representing the interests of business to local, state, and federal governmental leaders. The Chamber works to strengthen its voice and work with elected leaders throughout Deerfield Township, Mason City, Warren County, and state and federal representatives from our regional district to ensure that the interests of the business community are well represented in public policy decisions.
The Chamber provides opportunities for members to meet with elected officials through special events. Candidate forums and surveys are developed during local election cycles in order to ensure an informed Chamber membership and business community.
The Chamber’s Policy Priorities are developed by the Government Affairs Executive Council, through feedback from the annual Membership Legislative Survey, and communicates the Chamber’s positions on issues at the state, local and federal levels of government.
