The Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the Greater Williamsburg Chamber & Tourism Alliance, promotes pro-business policies in local and state government, advocating for a variety of business-related issues on behalf of nearly 2,600 businesses representing more than 300,000 working men and women in Hampton Roads. The Hampton Roads Business Political Action Committee (HRBizPAC) is a bi-partisan committee that presses for action on issues impacting business and supports candidates who share those views.

During Virginia’s General Assembly, the Chamber collaborates with the business lobby in Richmond, informs members with weekly electronic “Legislative News and Notes,” and engages members with electronic “Legislative Call to Action Alerts.”
