As a business owner, it is important to stay actively engaged in local issues and informed on the positions held by our city officials in office and of candidates running for office.
The Business Issues Committee (BIC/also known as Chamber PAC) is a political action committee dedicated to improving the business climate in Davis. Participation and money donated will go towards the support or opposition of ballot measures that affect Davis businesses. BIC wants the community as a whole, and our leaders in particular, to understand the importance of business activity and economic development in our town. BIC wants to express a reality-based viewpoint when the city is making zoning, traffic and circulation, job, parking, and perhaps most important, general plan decisions. The issues, strategies and expenditures of the BIC are recommended by the Chamber’s Government Relations Committee and approved by the Chamber Board of Directors.
BIC needs to be able to react quickly and effectively to issues as they arise - lobbying, campaigning and educating the citizens of Davis on both the short and long-term consequences. BIC cannot operate without you. To be effective, we need both volunteers to serve on our committee and funding to support these initiatives. Without funding, the business community passively reacts to issues rather than aggressively responding. We need your support.
To donate, please make out your check Davis Chamber of Commerce BIC and mail to Davis Chamber of Commerce 604 Third Street, Davis, CA 95616.
