President’s Message s s e n i s u B r o f e c i A Vo One of the most important roles of any chamber of commerce is to serve as a voice for business in dealing with the public sector. This component is critical, given the impact of public policy on many facets of business operations. Many business and economic development successes throughout the history of Lackawanna County were accomplished through partnerships of the Chamber and governmental entities at all levels. Government relations have always been an essential part of this Chamber, and will continue to be so in the future. We want to hear from you, our members, on issues that are important to your business. In the near future, you will receive a Government Affairs survey that includes questions designed to get your views on important matters of public policy. I want to strongly encourage all of our members to complete the survey, as it will provide staff and volunteer leadership with the core information needed to represent our business community in interactions with elected offi cials at all levels.
