The Henderson Chamber of Commerce (HCC) is the voice of business in government. It is the only organization in Henderson that represents businesses of all sizes, industries, and stages. Through identifying the needs of its member organizations, the HCC harnesses the collective power of member businesses to influence government outcomes through its legislative and issues committees, as well as Issues Mobilization Political Action Committee (IMPAC).

The IMPAC is a bipartisan group that makes direct contributions to candidates who promote and vote for an agenda of a favorable business climate. IMPAC operates separately from the HCC by independent HCC volunteer members and follows the mission of the HCC and its member businesses

“We are confident that we are putting forth a slate of candidates who have the ability to strengthen our business community here in Henderson,” said Matt Engle who serves as IMPAC’s chairman and is a member with the Henderson Chamber of Commerce, which is currently the fastest growing chamber in the valley with more than 1,300 members. “There is considerable strength in numbers and as the voice for businesses in the second largest city in the state, it’s imperative we are politically engaged to ensure we are not only supporting existing businesses, but also supporting legislators who will create an environment that makes us competitive with other markets.”

In determining candidates for endorsement, IMPAC requested responses to a questionnaire from each considered candidate and conducted interviews. Board members of IMPAC, which is comprised of 25 professionals from varying business sectors, also reviewed and evaluated each candidate’s history, professional experience, and commitment to civic service along with voting records of candidates currently serving as office incumbents. All information was compiled by the committee to determine which candidates would bring the expertise in understanding business issues, provide long-term strategic visioning and implementation policies, as well as, support the growth and attraction of successful businesses in Henderson and throughout Southern Nevada.

IMPAC will host a ‘Meet the Candidates’ reception and fundraiser on Tuesday, May 15 for newly endorsed candidates. You can register to attend here.  Additionally, IMPAC will evaluate and make endorsements for added candidates prior to the 2018 General Election.
