• Advocacy for Education & Workforce Development

    The Adirondack Regional Chamber of Commerce works with our member businesses, organizations, and the academic community who serve on committees, subcommittees, task forces, and councils to develop and implement policy on major issues affecting business in our region of Washington, Warren, Northern Saratoga and Essex Counties. 

    State Funding for Community Colleges

    The ARCC wrote a letter of support of a multi-year strategy to invest in our community colleges, urging Governor Hochul to support the Empire State Community College Workforce Guarantee. Community colleges are workforce development, and the ARCC believes that investing in and providing them with additional operating aid has never been more important.

    Support for WSWHE BOCES programs and funding

    The ARCC supports WSWHE BOCES legislative priorities for 2024, specifically requesting our elected representatives and policymakers work on our behalf to ensure our students, teachers, administrators, and support staff, have the resources and infrastructure they need to educate our future workforce.
