Promoting & Advocating the Legislative Interests of Members in the Regional Business Community

Local. State. Federal.

The purpose of the Business Works Committee is to provide a forum to discuss timely issues that affect our business community on a local, state, and federal level.  Local lawmakers and other decision-makers are frequent participants of Business Works programs and meetings – giving our Members the opportunity to ask questions about their business up close and personal.

Business Works is open for all Members of the Naperville Area Chamber of Commerce and the community. 

“We are fortunate to have a full-time Director of Government Affairs able to focus on vital policy issues and economic developments. This connectivity allows our Director to create timely programming, as well as to guide and empower Members to get educated and involved in the processes that benefit their business.” 

Programming as a Resource

Staying abreast of current events and the key policy matters that will spur economic growth, create waves inside our business community, or provide prosperity for our Members is how our programming is generated.

Whether you were unable to attend a virtual Business Works program, need to rewatch a program for more information, or would like to follow up with our thought leaders – find our Business Works Programs Archives here.

Voice Your Position

Although Business Works events are open to the community, only Committee Members may vote on a position when required. 

When Business Works takes a position, the recommendation is submitted to the Board of Directors for further action. The Board of Directors will then have final oversight and authority on the official position of the Naperville Area Chamber of Commerce.

Do you have a concern that impacts your business or a suggestion for our Business Works Committee about policies we need to have on our radar? Tell us so that we can add it to our agenda, review it, and determine if we can help get your voice heard locally, or on the State or Federal level – OR – provide you with contacts and resources to help you navigate the issue you face as a business.
