Uniting Business. Advancing Brevard.
Welcome and next meeting!
Our Business Advocacy Committee lobbies for key issues that impact Melbourne and Brevard County’s business community. Guided by our overarching mission statement as the Melbourne Regional Chamber, the Business Advocacy Committee’s main focus is protecting the business friendly climate of Melbourne, as we work in conjunction with all the Chambers across Brevard County.
Friends, if you’re looking to become a member of a Chamber that has your interests at heart and lobbies on your behalf, you’ve landed in exactly the right place!
Come join us, as we meet monthly, usually on the last Tuesday each month. (Sometimes that’s not always the fourth Tuesday, so please check our Chamber Calendar, or look below for our 2020 meetings.) We would love to have you at our next meeting, Tuesday, March 24th, at 8:00am, here at the Melbourne Regional Chamber.
***If you are a new business owner, we encourage you to schedule a meeting with Laurent Rawlings, our Director of Business Advocacy & Community Development. When creating and running a new business, you will likely not have the extra time necessary to commit to governmental relations. However, that is exactly why we’re here! While you’re engulfed in entrepreneurship, we work to keep you aware of anything coming down the pipeline that could be consequential to the business you are building. ***
A Message from the Chair
Greetings! I’m excited to be Chairing the 2020 Business Advocacy Committee, as our Chamber is experiencing a time of growth. We’re the Chamber that’s focused on protecting the needs of business, specifically as it pertains to government and governmental regulations.
My vision for this year’s Committee is to focus on educating our community, our small business owner members, and the majority of our Chamber membership on the strategy of effective advocacy.
We’re moving forward and strengthening our Advocacy efforts by targeting the relevant issues, and by getting the right people in office who will work hard to keep Brevard open for business.
Our Business Advocacy Committee meetings are open to all members. Come join us, and make a difference with a group that knows how to reach decision-makers. See you soon!

Chairwoman, Business Advocacy Committee
