• The Chamber - Priorities
  • Chamber Priorities

  • On behalf of our more than 2,000 members and their 109,000 employees, The Chamber serves as the voice of business in the Fargo Moorhead West Fargo metropolitan region. As the largest local chamber in Minnesota and North Dakota, we are proud to represent our members in the public policy arena at all levels of government to ensure our business climate remains strong and prosperous.

    The Fargo Moorhead West Fargo community is a strong and reliable economic engine for the state of North Dakota. We are proud to be the voice of our dynamic business community in Bismarck. We continue to advocate for sensible tax relief, a smart approach to the 21st century job market and permanent flood protection for our region.

    One of The Chamber’s top priorities is to advocate for responsible and successful strategies to respond to our workforce shortage in our region. We are fortunate to live in a thriving metropolitan area that offers a strong economy, evolving job market and exemplary educational institutions. It’s imperative to the continued success of our community that we shine a light on the impressive opportunities that are available for people who are looking for a great place to work, live and do business.

    We are focused on advocating for the FM Diversion. We believe it is a critical project that is the best way to protect our metro and provide permanent flood protection. We must remind our community of its importance and see it through to fruition.  

    In greater Minnesota, we are committed to protecting the funding mechanisms that allow border cities to remain competitive. We stand firm to mitigate policies that unfairly impact border cities and will advocate for expanded exemptions.

    We invite you to join us in our advocacy efforts. Get involved by contacting your legislators or joining our Public Policy committee.
