The role of 1si in promoting a fiscally-stable, business-friendly environment is deeply impacted by local, regional, state and national issues. Through our advocacy initiatives, we promote positive change by serving as the “Champions of Ideas” to achieve economic and business vitality for the region. Additionally, we strive to provide for our investors and members access to policy makers at all levels of government through forums, roundtables and one-on-one meetings.
The 2021 Advocacy Agenda provides the basis for 1si’s supported positions over the next 12 months. Our Governing Principles, constituting those matters generally deemed most important to Southern Indiana businesses, serve as the broader foundation for these positions and provide the framework from which specific priorities are developed and supported. In turn, our stated Priorities for 2021, which follow our Governing Principles, serve as our hot button legislative and policy issues upon which we expect to focus in the coming year. We will continue to monitor these and any other issues that may arise while new 1si Advocacy policies and processes are implemented during the next several months. The goal of both our Governing Principles and Priorities for 2021 is to further establish 1si as the voice for Southern Indiana businesses.
