"...It is important to understand that growth is not just a proposal or a bill. Growth is a philosophy. You have to believe that economic growth is the foundation on which a prosperous, secure, and compassionate society rests."

- U.S. Chamber President Thomas J. Donohue

The U.S. Chamber is hitting the road in 2017 with a singular message: Let’s Grow.

During the first 100 days of the new administration, we are visiting several cities across the country and talking with business owners and policy actors at multiple levels to identify the ingredients needed for economic growth and to explore what’s possible when it’s done right.

We believe that growth is a philosophy and an approach—not a bill—and requires vision and commitment at the local, state, and federal level. No one can do it alone.

We aim to spark optimism and share a new and very real opportunity to influence the decisions and policies that can drive economic growth while delivering a powerful message to the new administration and Congress that the business community is here to support them in creating real economic growth.
