The article reports on the participation of local chambers of commerce in the Nevada Chamber Roundtable in 2009. Area chambers are reportedly joining forces to lobby legislators, as they struggle to retain members. Most of the roundtable's works are said to focus on what happens in U.S. legislature and federal government in 2009. It is noted that the roundtable could address declining membership at local chambers.
