BIPP Meetings
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.

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!
