  • The Government Relations Committee (GRC) had the Chamber join 25 separate coalitions and authored 32 letters of opposition to fight job killer legislation in 2015. This effort, combined with other chambers in the state, defeated all but one of the job killer bills.

  • The Chamber continued to help steer a just and fair implementation of the new Wine Ordinance. This not only affects Lodi area wineries, but dozens of Ag Tourism businesses including restaurants, caterers, hotels, bed & breakfasts, photographers, and many other establishments, including all kinds of retail shops.

  • Our Partners in Education Committee (PIE) developed the Mamas and Papas program to assist 3rd graders who are not reading at grade level. PIE also created middle school and high school programs aimed at reducing drop out rates.
