The St. George Area Chamber Community Action Committee stays abreast of and weighs in on important local, state and federal issues that affect business. We inform the chamber board and have recommended the past positions the board has taken in support of and/or to educate about Dixie State University’s proposed science building, the Lake Powell Pipeline, Proposition 1 (the ¼ cent sales tax that would have funded transportation), sign ordinances, and more.
Annually we sponsor breakfast forums with our mayors and city councils, the Washington County Commission, and state legislators. We also partner with the DSU Institute of Politics to sponsor forums during elections to help our members make wise choices. While we rarely endorse candidates, we produce questionnaires and other educational materials to reveal candidate positions on issues that affect business. Each year we follow the state legislature closely and weigh in on legislation that impacts business.
