Government Affairs

The Connecticut Veterans Chamber of Commerce is the only veterans’ organization currently registered to lobby on behalf of veterans and veteran business owners.

We have offered expert testimony on a variety of topics related to veterans including:

  • Stolen Valor
  • Veteran Owned Business Set-asides
  • Veteran Business Incubator
  • Social Enterprise Entities
  • Military Training for College Credit
  • Military Occupational Specialty and Professional Certification
  • Income tax reduction for active duty time

We serve as a resource for government officials and advocate on behalf of the veteran community.

We actively work to reduce barriers to entry and foster business and workforce growth opportunities throughout the state.

We continue to work with legislative committees, House and Senate leadership, and the executive branch to explore ways to reduce barriers to entry and enhance opportunities for veterans and veteran owned business within the state.
