A2Y Chamber Welcomes Lizzy Balboa, Public Policy Intern

The A2Y Chamber is always looking for better ways to serve our members. One area of great importance to our community is public policy. This includes a better understanding of the participants and processes involved, along with an objective assessment of the political dynamics at work.

To keep our members updated on legal and regulatory changes, the A2Y Chamber has partnered with the University of Michigan’s Ford School of Public Policy to host a policy research intern. Lizzy Balboa will join us through July and will be available to help answer your policy questions regarding process, participants, and assessment of the practical outcomes. She will provide details on proposed or approved policies, explain their implications, and offer analyses on the political likelihood of implementation. In addition to answering your questions, Lizzy will also help us deliver updates on local, state and federal policy developments. These updates will be designed to serve as informative and objective summaries.

We are excited to have Lizzy on board and we know you will find great value in her work. A Michigan native, and graduate of Grand Valley State University, Lizzy is pursuing a Master of Public Policy degree at the Ford School of Public Policy. Along with her educational background, Lizzy brings experience as a financial and business journalist. She is pleased to field your policy inquiries at lizzy@a2ychamber.org.
