  • Representing Business to Government

    Chambers of Commerce were formed for the purpose of representing the interests of the business community and still serve that purpose today.  In fact, the closest private building to the white house is the office of the United States Chamber of Commerce.

    The Greater Conejo Valley Chamber of Commerce employs government affairs professionals who work year round representing the members of our Chamber to representatives of local, state and federal government.


  • "When our business community needed leadership, the Greater Conejo Valley Chamber jumped to action. They organized a coalition of nearly 100 businesses in Agoura Hills and Westlake Village to petition Los Angeles County to allow us to safely reopen during the Coronavirus shutdown at the end of May. Due to their efforts, we were able to reopen and get back to work!"

    - Peter Lee, Tavern Tomoko & Ladyface Brewery, May 2020

  • What We Believe – Our Legislative Agenda

    Annually, the Board of Directors of the Greater Conejo Chamber of Commerce approve a Legislative Agenda.  It is a document that outlines the position of the Chamber on a wide variety of local, state and federal public policy issues.

  • Our Partners

    The Greater Conejo Valley Chamber of Commerce is not alone in its effort to represent business to government.  We are a part of coalitions of business organizations sending unified messages to our elected officials about the types of policies that make it easier to do business in our community.

  • Greater Conejo Valley Chamber is a proud member of this advocacy organization; formed as a coalition of the Chambers of Commerce from our region.  By working together as an alliance, we are able to better represent the voice of our local businesses across the Gold Coast region.


  • CalChamber, as it is also known, is the single strongest voice of business in the California State Capitol. Their membership includes hundreds of chambers across the nation. CalChamber is governed by their Board of Directors which include some of the largest employers in the State of California. 


  • The eldest organization of its kind, known for business advocacy and influence on policy change. We are honored to be a 5 Star Accredited Chamber; making us 1 of 6 in the State of California to receive this rating. Of the 7,000 chambers throughout the United States, only 200 of these are Accredited. These elite chambers represent the top 3% of all chambers in the United States.

    "When the Chamber recognized the need to provide advocacy for our business, they carefully questioned us on the details for our housing project, facilitated a presentation to members of their board, educated their members and encouraged the business community to make their opinions known during the public hearing at City Council. The Chamber was an instrumental partner in The Lakes project being approved in November of 2021 and we look forward to breaking ground by 2024."
