Like many Chambers of Commerce across the country, the Greater Albuquerque Chamber of Commerce is in the business of promoting the business environment of its members. However, the Greater Albuquerque Chamber of Commerce is also in the business of advocating on behalf of its investors, lobbying for regulatory and legislative changes that are beneficial to the growth and diversity of our region’s private sector. One vehicle for achieving these changes is through our Sector Advocacy Teams (SATs).
We advocate for our investors.
Participants in these SATs are drawn from Chamber staff and Board members along with members of allied organizations and trade associations, industry experts, and leaders within the government. Working sector by sector, SATs have become a primary means of highlighting issues that make their way into the Greater Albuquerque Chamber of Commerce’s comprehensive lobbying and agenda-shaping efforts in Santa Fe. Five SATs meet to explore specific challenges within their respective industries and make recommendations for public policy remedies.
