The Government Affairs Committee monitors legislation, environmental statutes, and political issues of concern that may impact the business environment in Irvine and neighboring cities.

Often, local, state, and federal elected officials are invited to participate in committee meetings and provide updates from their offices. The committee works to provide a unified voice on issues and projects affecting businesses, members and citizens within Irvine and beyond its borders.

Meets every first Thursday of the month at 8:00 AM, at the Greater Irvine Chamber, 36 Executive Park, Suite 100, Irvine.

Chaired by Kate Klimow, assistant vice chancellor, Community and Governmental Affairs at the University of California, Irvine.
