Our Advocacy Goals

We strive to ensure elected officials, government staff and other community leaders are aware of the concerns of the business community. Members are encouraged to contact Partnership president & CEO Chris Romer at (970) 477-4016 if there is an issue or concern that’s impacting your business.

Vail Valley Partnership is working on your behalf at the local, regional & state levels. In addition to our role as a policy advocate, we are a community partner and the source for creating broad-based coalitions around issues we all care about; from transportation to housing to workforce development to rural broadband to education. We do this because business issues are non-partisan and do not have a home in either political party – and our mountain community doesn’t always have a voice at the statehouse.

Businesses in our community need someone to actively support the things important to them and Vail Valley Partnership is here to play that role. We are uniquely positioned to be a voice for our business community within our region and with our elected legislators, with 840+ members representing over 80% of the local workforce. As one of Colorado’s largest Chambers of Commerce, we are able to advocate effectively on behalf of Eagle County businesses where few other organizations can.

As business leaders dedicated to the economic vitality of the Vail Valley, the Partnership’s board of governors has a goal to advance issues of importance to our local business community. Our strategic priorities provide some of the most visible evidence of our role as the voice for business.

In both local & state government, we take an active role to advocate for a business-friendly community because we believe that a strong business community leads to a strong community as a whole.
