West & North Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce is affiliated to the British Chambers of Commerce.
This relationship underpins and extends our lobbying activity, making sure we are the voice of business in the corridors of power.
Our policy staff meet regularly with BCC and others from across the Chamber network, to build up information and knowledge that helps crystallize and confirm policy positions on various issues. BCC staff can then lobby national government ministers and civil servants from a position of strength and certainty.
Examples of how and when we work closely with our national partner (which, by the way, works for us, and not the other way around) include:
