  • MACE Advocacy Alliance
  • Since I first entered the chamber world in 2014, I heard a lot of buzz about MACE and its annual policy conference. I finally attended in 2016 and found the speakers, content and attendees to be top-notch.  It was interesting to hear from other chamber staff who represented all levels of government affairs programs. I left with a notebook full of ideas and many new connections from other states.  This one is definitely worth the time!

  • November 9-10, 2017 – St. Paul, MN

    Building on the success of the Maximizing Membership ROI conference, the MACE Advocacy Alliance is presenting the next step in chamber evolution. Effective chamber leaders have the skillset necessary to drive decisions at all levels (local, regional, state and federal). The ability to focus on the issues your members care about and develop policy will take your chamber from searching for membership to providing ROI to your members.


    By hosting sessions like the political bootcamp, and the advocacy idea exchange, the policy conference provides the latest information on positioning your chamber and talking to political figures about your agenda. You will return with the tools you need to build strong business alliances at all levels of government and an action plan for influencing decisions.


    Hosted by the Intercontinental Saint Paul Riverfront hotel, the conference attendees will be given access to a superb location in the heart of downtown St. Paul.


    Featuring top political and policy speakers, this important conference will give you the skills to drive decisions and create policy that impacts your members’ bottom line.
