HUB Council


The Hub Chamber Council is a working policy council comprised of the leaders of 11 metropolitan chambers of commerce across Georgia. Each has volunteered to come together in order to research and better understand issues that affect business in all regions that each chamber represents, as well as to create a common policy platform regarding these issues. The Council collaborates with regional and state development, economic and policy experts and interest groups to act as a voice to influence state policy goals and strives to do best for business in Georgia. Focus areas of the 2023 legislative session include Winning the War for Talent, Workforce Development and Housing, Future Forward Infrastructure and Fiscal Security.
