Business Advocacy Committee

The mission of the Business Advocacy Committee is to ensure local, state and federal government policies are conducive to a strong business climate and that community decisions support quality economic growth.  The Committee's goal is to partner with government to create a more dynamic business climate in which to work, live and play.

The CEP works closely with Ocala City Council, Belleview City Commission, the Marion County Board of Commissioners, Florida Legislature and congressional leaders in Washington, D.C. to promote public policy decisions that reflect the priorities of the region’s business community.

The Business Advocacy Committee is chaired by the CEP's Vice Chairman of the Board reflecting the importance the organization places on this committee.
