California Chamber of Commerce
Website:http://www.calchamber.com/Pages/Default.aspx
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."[1] 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."[1] 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.[1]
