The Public Policy Committee of RCCSV actively collaborates with the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC), the Silicon Valley Coalition of Chambers, the Western Business Alliance (WBA), the Billy DeFrank LGBTQ Community Center, BAYMEC and other local community organizations to learn about and advocate for issues of interest for our membership and the LGBT community-at-large.
When there are issues the committee deems important they are brought to the RCCSV Board of Directors for further action/implementation. RCCSV will engage and activate its members when their interests are challenged through our website, eNews or by partnering with other organizations championing the issue. If you are interested in guiding the Chamber’s public policy please contact us.
