Advocacy in Action

Hilton Head Island-Bluffton Chamber of Commerce’s Government Affairs Committee

The Government Affairs Committee provides a meeting place for an exchange of ideas and dialogue on matters of public policy in our community. The committee meets on the first Friday of each month at Chamber Headquarters. The meetings include special speakers, as well as updates on local, county, state and federal legislative actions. This committee helps develops the Chamber’s annual Legislative Agenda and provides guidance on Chamber positioning for issues in our business community. However, when this committee isn’t meeting, the Chamber is very active in political advocacy through the efforts of its Public Policy Director, Hannah Horne. The “GAC” is led by executive board member, Walt Nester of McNair Law Firm.
