Business Advocacy

Elevate Rapid City serves as a voice in the legislature for all of our member businesses and their employees, advocating for policies and business interests at all levels of local, state, and the federal government.

During the legislative session, our Governmental Relations team is responsible for the promotion and implementation of a variety of interests, including:

Continual contact with business leaders, interest groups/associations, respective elected officials, and government agency administrators

Legislative objectives determined by the Board of Directors

We’re dedicated to building and fostering the kind of community that not only offers an outstanding quality of life for its residents but also instills a positive climate for businesses and economic development, and we’ll work diligently with government representatives to achieve those goals.

Request for Support

We encourage our members to make us aware of issues that may affect local businesses. If you have an issue that you would like to bring forward for consideration by Elevate Rapid City please fill out the below form and submit it to Anna Hays.  The form will then be given to the Public Policy Committee for review with final consideration by the Board of Directors.

If you have any questions, please contact Anna Hays, 718-8480.
