The GAHCC is proud to be a member driven organization. As such, we aim to allow our members the opportunity to weigh in on issues that affect them most.

Through our Public Policy and Economic Development Department you will receive public policy updates from all levels of government, have your voice heard through our advocacy committee, and help shape the economic growth of our region.

The GAHCC advocacy committee is in the process of creating a state legislative agenda. In the past they have held advocacy sessions with Special Guest Speakers including Mayor Steve Adler, Senator Kirk Watson, Gina Hinojosa, Precourt Sports Ventures, Mayor Pro Tem Delia Garza, and Council Member Sabino "Pio" Renteria. Furthermore, the members weigh in on important city issues such as endorsing Austin Bond Propositions, and influencing the effort to bring a Major League Soccer team to Austin.
