Public Policy & Community Affairs team

The Choose Chicago Public Policy and Community Affairs team promotes the interests of the visitor industry and our partner organizations.

We oversee Choose Chicago’s relations with the local, state, and federal levels of government; develop policy solutions and a civic consensus to meet our goals; develop external coalitions and political support for our initiatives; and communicate our missions, successes, and needs to key civic stakeholders. We’re committed to communicating the importance of tourism in Chicago, as well as sharing information about issues that potentially could impact the visitor industry.

These efforts are greatly enhanced by Choose Chicago Champions, who volunteer their time to build relationships with legislators in support of our advocacy initiatives. Learn about becoming a Choose Chicago Champion.
