The Quad Cities Chamber is a catalyst for policy advocacy at the local, state and federal level. With 85% of our membership having 50 employees or less, advocacy is a critical resource that we offer to our members. Our goal is to create and maintain a business friendly environment in which our economy can grow with a focus on our core industries: advanced metals and materials, agricultural innovation, corporate operations and support, defense, and logistics.
