What does Elevate do?
Elevate Rapid City leads pro-business advocacy for the Black Hills and western South Dakota region. Investing in a strong presence within political and government processes is crucial in an effort to maintain and grow a pro-business environment. Building effective working relationships with decision-makers, Elevate strives to impact all levels of government: city, county, state, and federal. Some of the business advocacy and quality growth work include full-time lobbyist presence during the South Dakota Legislative Session, hosting events and forums to give voters access to elected officials, and policy education and outreach for business leaders in the region.
