The Tampa Bay Chamber regularly hosts several events a year designed to give our members a better understanding of key public policy issues that could have an effect on their businesses or the Tampa Bay community. This includes our Public Policy Roundtables, special edition Summits, Legislative Kick-off and Wrap-up events, which welcome elected officials and policy experts to provide our members with a better understanding of key issues and legislation that could affect our local economy.
