    Representation of Members' Interests to Government

    Chamber pursues matters on behalf of its membership at the highest level with Government representatives, and actively monitors and assesses all new or proposed legislation to ensure that members' interests and views on important matters are represented. Chamber reviews and assesses all States Consultation Papers, then engages with its membership through its Executive Committee structure and responds accordingly. We also adopt a proactive stance on key issues, providing recommendations to senior politicians and States' departments in a pragmatic and constructive manner.

    Chamber operates through an Executive Council comprised of the President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Legal Advisor, CEO and the Chairperson of each of the Committees which represent the main industry sectors on the Island.

    Members of the Executive Council and the Executive Team are always available to listen to members' views and to represent their collective interests.

    The Chamber website includes the latest news affecting the business community, along with events listings, responses to consultation papers, and other relevant information.

    Events Programme

    Chamber hosts a wide-ranging programme of topical and popular events throughout the year. The principal monthly event is the Chamber Lunch. These lunches are always supported by a high profile guest speaker, talking on a matter of interest or of particular relevance to members.

    The lunches are regularly attended by some 180+ guests, and therefore provide an excellent opportunity for entertaining clients and business contacts, and for networking with senior representatives from other organisations across the Island.

    Chamber also holds a series of periodic Critical Briefings. These briefings are designed and organised relating to current matters of interest or relevance to the business community.
