Government Affairs


The Government Affairs Committee (GAC) is an independent branch of the Lake Arrowhead Communities Chamber of Commerce with a focus on local government, issues, and impact on our community life.  The GAC makes recommendations for advocacy and support for issues that affect our community.


GAC is responsible for organizing community members with local, state, and federal government bodies and officials in areas of interest to our communities, and to promote effective cooperation between the communities and government.

  • To keep members apprised of legislative issues that will affect our communities
  • To keep members and government entities informed of local issues that may affect the quality of life in our communities
  • To bring motions for actions related to such issues before the Chamber Board
