The California Chamber of Commerce
is a 16,000-member organization based in California
that according to its website is "the champion of California businesses, large and small."
It was founded in the early 1900s. The "California Chamber of Commerce has worked to make California a better place to do business by giving private-sector employers a voice in state politics and providing a full range of California-specific products and services."
The California Chamber of Commerce efforts succeed in making compliance easier after laws are passed, while working within state and federal politics to ensure fair legislation and a pro-business climate.
