Advocacy

We’ve got your back! Each day the Roseville Area Chamber of Commerce is hard at work advocating on behalf of business to local, regional and national decision-makers on policies that directly impact businesses most. Our team is devoted to paving the way for businesses to continue moving forward. Wendy Gerig, Roseville Area Chamber CEO, participates in weekly conference calls with the California Chamber of Commerce to focus on statewide policy. She also holds quarterly meetings with our County Executive and local Supervisors as well as monthly meetings with the Roseville Mayor and City Manager. The Economic and Government Affairs Committee gives Chamber members the opportunity to work cooperatively to achieve common goals.

The Greater Sacramento Economic Council’s first Competitiveness Forum was held on November 15th, in partnership with the Roseville Area Chamber of Commerce, Rocklin Area Chamber of Commerce, and Lincoln Area Chamber of Commerce.

The Greater Sacramento Economic Council’s (GSEC) mission is to spearhead community-led direction in order to retain, attract, grow and scale new businesses, develop advanced industries and create jobs and investment throughout our six-county region.  This event marks the beginning of a series of quarterly forums with the purpose of educating the business community and encouraging leaders to advocate for expansion within the region.  The panel consisted of Dr. John Jackson, President of William Jessup University, Willie Duncan, President of Sierra College and Dr. Christopher Weare the Director of Research and Strategy for GSEC.  The panelists discussed macroeconomic trends and highlighted the strengths and weaknesses within our region as it pertains to our changing economy. They implored the group that we must start thinking like a mega-region and have strategic plans in place in order to bring and retain new businesses within the region.  We must understand our weaknesses and work to reinvent and diversify our economy so that we can stay competitive as a region. The Roseville Area Chamber of Commerce plans to continue to partner with local leadership in order to promote and meet the needs of business and industry in the South Placer Region.

Congratulations to our newly elected and re-elected City Council representatives!
We look forward to working alongside you!

CalChamber Vote Record: Major Bills 2016

The CalChamber publishes this report to provide member firms and local chamber of commerce a gauge by which to measure the performance of their elected representatives in the Legislature.

I invite you to send me an email or give me a call to share how the Chamber can represent the needs of your business to the government or other issues that are of particular concern to you. The Roseville Area Chamber is more than 1,400 members strong and the collective voice of our member businesses is stronger than any one voice alone. Let’s collaborate and make doing business better for everyone!

Wendy Gerig, Roseville Area Chamber CEO

Once again, the Roseville Area Chamber of Commerce has demonstrated that it is not afraid to engage on weighty issues. Though one might think the issue of regulating marijuana cultivation in Placer County might be outside the normal scope of a business organization, the Chamber quickly and correctly identified the myriad ways that allowing the proliferation of pot farms would be bad for the overall economic and societal health of our community.

Kirk Uhler, Placer County Supervisor

Wendy saved the A-Frame Signs by conducting surveys and organizing meetings with city personnel and business representatives that rely on the use of these signs. She provided contact information of city officials as well as helped define the parameters for A-Frame use. Had it not been for Wendy and her efforts, the ability for businesses in the area to use this form of advertising would have likely been a thing of the past.
