Our Advocacy

The Charles River Regional Chamber is a catalyst, convener and communicator in support of the businesses and nonprofits across Greater Boston’s inner western suburbs.  We foster partnerships within government and with other business associations and advocacy organizations to drive our region’s economic and cultural vitality.

Areas of Focus

Our Board of Directors agreed in 2023 to focus the chamber’s advocacy on five core priorities which we believe are among our employers’ and region’s most urgent challenges. We recognize that none of these areas of focus can be addressed alone. They are all interconnected and so are their solutions.

We also recognize that every community (and every industry) we serve is unique. Our advisory committees, staff and board are here to listen, to inform and to identify key priorities throughout the region.

We work on behalf of our member business and nonprofits to cut through the complexity and deliver timely and relevant information, resources and access to elected leaders/policymakers so that you can focus on what you do best – running your business/nonprofit.
