Dawson County Chamber of Commerce is committed to being the voice of business.
The Chamber advocates on behalf of our membership and community at the local, state, and national level to promote a business-friendly atmosphere. The Chamber also advocates on issues specifically impacting the Dawson County community.

Each year, the Advocacy Committee creates a legislative agenda that is presented to our legislators.
Some of the ways the Chamber advocates locally are:

  • Candidate Forums
  • Mayoral Debates
  • Public Meeting Attendance
