About


The Great Lakes Metro Chambers Coalition is a collective of chambers of commerce across the Great Lakes region that jointly advocate on core policy issues, including water quality, immigration reform, trade, and transportation and infrastructure. Since its founding in 2008, the coalition has become a leading and effective voice on federal policy impacting the Great Lakes region. The coalition is co-led by the Greater Pittsburgh Chamber of Commerce – an affiliate of the Allegheny Conference and the Greater Cleveland Partnership. The Buffalo Niagara Partnership and the Detroit Regional Chamber round out the leadership team.
