The NKY Chamber serves as the voice of its members on key legislative and regulatory issues in Northern Kentucky, Frankfort and Washington D.C. Each year, we identify legislative issues affecting our members. Once issues are identified, policy development committees analyze and evaluate the issues and the potential impact on businesses. As a member, there are many opportunities to access legislators and key government officials, to get involved and build relationships.
