Chamber Action Network (CAN)
As the state’s largest business advocacy organization, the State Chamber’s only mission is to make certain that the men and women creating policy hear your voice before they cast their vote.
While the State Chamber staff is advocating for legislation impacting the business community at the Capitol, elected officials also need to hear from their constituents as they determine their positions. We want to make it easy for businesses to get involved and influence legislation that impacts their business and Oklahoma’s economy.
That’s exactly why we have expanded our partnership with local chambers and economic development organizations to create the Chamber Action Network (CAN). CAN is a grassroots effort to ensure the voice of every business is heard at the state Capitol. This new initiative provides a comprehensive toolkit of resources for local chambers and economic development executives, to easily stay engaged in what happens at the capitol while keeping focused on their own jobs in their communities.
Participation in CAN is easy! Just sign-on to the CAN Priorities, and you will gain access to all our tools allowing you to advocate on pro-business issues during the fast-paced legislative session.
Throughout the legislative session, members will receive weekly emails and can participate in bi-weekly conference calls to stay up-to-date on important pieces of legislation affecting Oklahoma’s business climate.
If you want to take action on a piece of legislation, simply access our tools to make your communities voice heard — through action alert emails, sample letters to the editor, a list of target legislators to call, or the option to add organizations logo to handouts for legislators. The process is streamlined to help chambers & economic developers engage at the capitol successfully, but ultimately decisions about whether to engage are left to local executives and their boards.
With the remarkable strides our state has made passing pro-growth legislation in the last few years, it is critical for Oklahoma’s business community to remain unified behind these reforms and policy goals.
