Championing and informing local business

The Chamber policy team exists to research business views, inform businesses of key policy decisions, legislative changes and opportunities that might impact them, and act as the voice of local business, engaging stakeholders on behalf of our members. Our priorities are determined by business, for business, with the support of the Chamber Council, an elected group of representatives from across Birmingham Chamber membership, and other divisional Chamber committees.
