As the voice of Tampa's business community, the Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce is at any given time engaged on a number of public policy fronts. Volunteer leadership and staff are actively participating in dialogue with elected officials to advocate on behalf of the Tampa Bay business community.

Issues are either identified by Public Policy Staff, Members, or Committees of the Chamber. Positions are developed by gathering available information regarding an issue, and then presenting the pro and con perspectives to the Policy Council for discussion and recommendation of a position. The recommended position is presented to the executive committee and ultimately to the Board of Directors for approval.
