Government Relations

A key mission of the Hendersonville Area Chamber is to be the voice of business. While Chamber members enjoy unparalleled access to networking, promotional and educational opportunities, our members also benefit from the Chamber’s regulatory and legislative advocacy initiatives at the local, county and state level. Dedicated volunteers throughout the business community actively monitor the issues and decisions at every level of government for action by our chamber leadership. Engagement through annual events such as: Coffee & Conversation, Aldermen Receptions, timely candidate forums and the annual State of the City address are just a few of the mechanisms we employ to keep our business community informed about relevant issues.
