What kinds of City of Mountain View programs would help  YOU or  YOUR BUSINESS be more "green" or sustainable? What additional actions would you like to take if you could? What's preventing you from doing more? 
 
We invite you to COME SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS at our community EVENT and through our SURVEY.

Business Issues & Public Policy Meeting
BIPP (Business Issues & Public Policy) is the branch of the Chamber that advocates for the business community. BIPP is like the eyes, ears, and voice of local business. The decisions that the BIPP committee makes are presented to the Chamber's Board of Directors. The Chamber BOD then decides and votes on whether or not they will take a position on an issue, and what that position will be. 

Anyone can attend BIPP meetings, but you need to attend 3 of them and become an official BIPP member, before you are allowed to vote.

How are decisions made in Mountain View, and how do you, as a business owner or resident, make sure your voice is heard? By attending BIPP meetings!

Next BIPP Meeting: 
August 8, 2018 
12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Chamber Board Room
