GCP Advocacy Year in Review and Look Ahead

The Greater Cleveland Partnership (GCP) provides a unified voice for the Northeast Ohio business community and our policy priorities are driven directly by our members. The role of the GCP Advocacy Team is to mobilize private sector leadership, expertise, and resources from businesses of all sizes to create attractive economic conditions that create jobs, grow investment, and improve the prosperity of our region.  In 2017, a $1.5 trillion federal tax reform package was signed into law and the 132nd Ohio General Assembly introduced more than 700 pieces of legislation. In addition, numerous local initiatives were debated, including several crucial ballot measures that allowed the voters to help determine what the regional landscape will look like in the future.

Last year, GCP enjoyed some significant victories and we take tremendous pride in serving as your voice. We look forward to continuing this important work with all our members going forward.  

Learn how the GCP Advocacy Team has helped member organizations in 2017 and what is on the horizon for 2018.
