The Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce has helped us move the business forward by creating brand awareness for us and allowing us the opportunity to create long term partnerships with our neighbors in the community. Thank you again for all that you do.

The Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce advocates on behalf of the local business community through the Government Affairs Committee (GAC). This group is open only to Chamber members and meets on the third Thursday of every month, in the Chamber’s Board Room, to address issues of importance. Issues include urban planning, transportation, real estate development, construction, taxation, and state and regional legislation that impact the business community.
The GAC has hosted prominent leaders and speakers from a number of leaders and government entities, including the Office of Congressman, Ted Lieu; Southern California Edison; LA Metro; and many more. It provides a crucial forum for members to understand what is going on in the City of Beverly Hills and surrounding region.
The GAC makes recommendations on select legislative and policy issues to the Chamber’s Board of Directors, which has the final authority to take official positions on behalf of the Chamber.
