As the nation’s largest metropolitan chamber of commerce, GCP’s member-driven policy agenda is the result of substantial feedback from the business community. The 2021 – 2022 agenda arrives in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and its subsequent economic repercussions. Its publication also coincides with a new U.S. Congress and Ohio General Assembly.

This agenda serves as an important roadmap for the GCP’s advocacy work, prioritizing the policies and principles we know businesses need to be successful.

It also maps the ways in which we can effectively safeguard, scale, and reform fundamental priorities that create the right business environment.


Beyond our core policy priorities, the agenda delineates our region’s structural challenges, illustrating the impediments they present to business growth. In response to these deep-seeded problems, the document lays out local, state, federal, and cross-cutting policy priorities to solve them from the ground-up.
