Policy, research and education to help Portland thrive

Doing what it takes to support Portland—and getting results

The Portland Metro Chamber supports Portland’s business community, and the Portland community-at-large, by advancing policy, sharing information, and helping professionals grow as civic leaders.

Public Policy

The Chamber works to shape local, regional, state, and federal policy in areas most impactful to our community.

Led by our members, we tackle issues that affect how business is done in Portland: taxes, transportation, workforce development, land use, and more. We also build broad coalitions to address Portland’s livability challenges: housing, homelessness, climate change, and government accountability.
