Smart politics is smart business, and knowing what is happening on the political front is important for businesses of all sizes. The Greater Akron Chamber provides the most up-to-date information on policies and government relations that could affect your business and makes available the resources to:

  • Connect our members to important legislative issues
  • Keep tabs on political climates
  • Connect to decision makers
  • Get involved in grassroots advocacy efforts

Public Policy Agenda

The Public Policy Agenda mirrors the Advance Greater Akron investment priorities of talent, innovation, and leadership. With the help of our members and partners, we utilize a policy framework to guide responsible decisions that foster growth, job creation, and a strong quality of life for our communities.


Take Action

There is power in numbers and we encourage all members of the Greater Akron Chamber to take action to ensure we create a climate of prosperity.


Make Your Vote Count

Voting is a right and the ultimate expression of our freedom.  As the voice of the business community, the Greater Akron Chamber encourages our members to promote the importance of voting to their employees and to educate them on the ballot issues.  Visit your county board of election website on how to register to vote, vote early or find your polling location.

Join business leaders in the region to make the Chamber voice the voice for regional business.
