About Public Policy

The Public Policy committee exists to provide information and advocacy regarding local, state and federal policy decisions and how they impact chamber members and our city.

Public Policy hosts educational and informative briefings for members about legislative issues, fosters relationships with elected officials and coordinates events to inform our members on issues that affect Richardson. These events include:

  • Public Policy briefings
  • Candidate Forums
  • Austin Legislative Tour
  • Federal Legislative Tour
  • Voter Registration events (See Voter Resources here)

During Texas legislative years, the committee develops a legislative agenda and advocates on behalf of those priorities.

Check this page and our calendar for all upcoming events.
