The GAC meets biannually and additional meetings may be scheduled as issues surface throughout the legislative session.  GAC members will also be encouraged to participate in the regular legislative activities of the Greater Memphis Chamber such as the Memphis Chamber Day on the Hill (Nashville), Washington Legislative Conference (Washington D.C.) and other similar activities.

Members will include public policy, public affairs/government affairs professionals and those with an interest in public affairs from member companies of the Greater Memphis Chamber.  To be a member of the GAC, contact Haley Simmons. You must be in good standing with the Chamber to participate.


The Government Affairs Committee (GAC) serves as the advocacy arm of the Greater Memphis Chamber, communicating the Chamber’s agenda to all respective legislative bodies as developed by the Government Affairs Executive Committee and approved by the Chamber Board of Directors.
