State Policy Agenda

The Urbandale Chamber of Commerce is an Affiliate of the Greater Des Moines Partnership and participates in policy discussions.  The Partnership’s Government Policy Council develops priorities every year and works to gain support for those priorities from our state legislators and Governor. Throughout the session, the GPC hosts monthly briefings at the Statehouse to keep members up-to-date on the progress of our legislative priorities.
