Advocacy:  The art of pleading or arguing of a cause, idea or policy

The Alliance attracts new and retains existing businesses and jobs by fostering a business-friendly environment where the private sector can succeed without a heavy overburden of restrictive regulations and costs.

Alliance staff and members advocate on many issues, testify before City Council and various Commissions; send letters of support to city, county, state and federal officials on business issues; and meet with elected officials at every level, including travel to Washington, D.C. on Cap-to-Cap to seek stimulus funding for shovel-ready projects.

Just a few recent advocacy efforts within the last year include:

  • Advocated for area-wide business interests with Metro Chamber and Sacramento Business Coalition.
  • Held 21st Annual Awards Luncheon to recognize outstanding accomplishments of Alliance members.
  • Produced largest Picnic in the Park (over 3,500 people), Power Inn’s only community festival.
  • Provided a $65,000 reimbursable loan to Sacramento County Dept. of Transportation to begin pre-engineering work to widen South Watt Ave.
  • Joined over 300 area business leaders on Cap-to-Cap to Washington, D.C. to address key issues with U.S. Congressmen and Senators.

Imagine the impact on your guests and customers when every front door of the 1,100 members of the Power Inn Alliance proclaim we’re Pushing and Pulling for a better community.
