Government Action

The Plattsburgh-North Country Chamber links almost 4,000 businesses employing more than 50,000 people, and is one of the FIVE LARGEST CHAMBERS OF COMMERCE IN NEW YORK STATE.

This makes us the VOICE OF THE NORTH COUNTRY ECONOMY, and we take that responsibility very seriously. Our active Government Affairs Division engages in regular advocacy in Washington, Albany, Ottawa and elsewhere; brings key officials and candidates to the region to engage them in supporting our priorities; distributes timely information and Issue Alerts; and works with partners in both the U.S. and Canada on critical issues.

We are proud of the impact we have had on issues and projects as varied as HEALTH INSURANCE for small business, U.S.-CANADIAN BORDER facilities and policies, the development of PLATTSBURGH INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, and attracting more than $200 million in new investment in our region's TRANSPORTATION INFRASTRUCTURE, among other recent priorities.
