Global Talent Chamber Network

Resources Founding Members Updates



NAE’s Global Talent Chamber Network brings together chambers of commerce from across the country who see immigrant integration as an economic growth strategy. Through this network, NAE offers research, technical assistance, and strategic advice to chambers on issues of immigration, immigrant integration, and economic development. Members of the network have access to the following support:

  • Tailored economic reports highlighting the contributions of immigrants to a metro area, congressional district, or state;
  • Communications and messaging guidance to frame immigration as an economic issue and an opportunity for growth;
  • Policy analysis of federal, state and local immigration legislation and its projected impact on chambers through webinars and individual engagement;
  • Plug-and-play advocacy opportunities and campaigns coordinated by NAE’s political and public affairs teams in the field (e.g., national fly-ins and days of action, state legislative campaigns, etc.);
  • Best practices in local immigrant integration and economic development strategies; and
  • Online resources and toolkits that highlight the work of chambers of commerce in communities across the country.
