Chambers of commerce play a pivotal role in driving economic growth and addressing the concerns of their members. To achieve these goals, chambers engage in advocacy efforts. For chambers of commerce, advocacy goes beyond traditional business promotion. It involves active participation in the legislative process, to shape laws that impact their community.

Tracking public policy is key to a chamber’s effectiveness. By doing so, chambers can align their efforts with the needs and aspirations of their members. Tracking policy not only supports economic growth. It also helps Chambers foster an environment conducive to business expansion and innovation.

Policy tracking tools like Plural have revolutionized the way that chambers of commerce engage in advocacy. Plural is a comprehensive solution for monitoring legislative activities. We’re proud to help chambers to stay up-to-date on the policy changes that affect their constituents.

“With the bill tracking tools we used before, analyzing proposed legislative bills and its changes also meant going through several screens. With this platform, it is much easier to identify the rationale for proposed legislation, and how changes could impact our legislative priority areas.” – Kwee Lan Teo, Austin Chamber of Commerce
