The Public Affairs Committee works to inform, educate, engage, and advocate for the Brookings business community regarding relevant public policy initiatives at the state and local level.
Monitoring local, state and national issues is an important function of the Public Affairs Committee. But it's not only political trends the committee works with. Societal trends and emerging local issues are studied and evaluated based on their influences on business and economic health. These evaluations form the basis for policy recommendations and programs that should be created to help inform members. Thanks to this committee, the Brookings Chamber members are always up-to-date.
