Throughout the year, we provide members with a variety of opportunities to learn more about issues affecting local businesses, including:
- events where you can interact with elected officials
- a government affairs committee, where you can actively address issues vital to the business community
- legislative updates on our website and in our publications, where you can find the latest news that affects Lincoln Park
Letters of Support
Speaking up about policy issues and having your voice heard by your elected officials can be intimidating. That’s where the LPCC can help. The LPCC supports our members by contacting the appropriate elected official with a concise, direct, polite and persuasive message that highlights the issue, relevant facts and how the elected official can act on your behalf.
If you have an issue impacting your business, industry or neighborhood and would like your voice heard, contact us today.
Government Affairs Committee
The LPCC is committed to the success of our members and the Lincoln Park neighborhood. We also provide a strong, unified voice in support of the local business community. Through our Government Affairs Committee, the LPCC draws on past experience to craft messages in support of future policies that support business growth.
Legislative Agenda and Accomplishments
Developed by the LPCC’s Government Affairs Committee and approved by the Board of Directors at their February meeting, the 2015 Legislative Agenda provides for specific action items for the LPCC to champion while establishing four general legislative priorities. Together, broad concepts and specific targets enable the LPCC to engage in activities that range from community outreach, letter-writing campaigns and media relations to public testimony and support for a wide-variety of initiatives and issues.
The LPCC also releases a legislative “report card” that highlights many of the successes in advocacy achieved by the organization in 2013. Whether it’s providing a unified, pro-business voice in support of a key development or advocating for the approval of a license or permit for a specific business, the LPCC will continue to be a partner for local businesses and the Lincoln Park community.
