The Public Affairs Council advises the CalChamber on political and policy strategies to improve California's business climate.

The 300-member council monitors key policy issues, reviews the CalChamber’s PAC endorsements and makes recommendations on ballot measures and initiative campaigns to the CalChamber Board and president. It is chaired by CalChamber Board member Gillian Zucker of Auto Club Speedway.

The goal of the conference and the Public Affairs Council is to provide member companies with the insider information they need to make good decisions on both the policy and politics in Sacramento.
