Bank of England Forum

Would you like direct access to economic updates and insights from the Bank of England? The Bank listens to business leaders, regularly engaging with the Chamber to gain intelligence on business confidence and investment intentions. Any feedback and issues are fed into the Monetary Policy Committee, which sets the UK’s monthly interest rates. Attend our popular breakfast forums to find out about local investment and trading conditions.

Members Forum

Our Members Forum allows you to directly lobby on a wide variety of topical issues, affecting jobs, growth, and the economy. Based on intelligence from across our membership base, business leaders from a diverse range of sectors assess the Chamber's lobbying and campaigning activities. Open to all members, these forums take place on a quarterly basis.


Do you have an issue, concern or campaign that you would like to raise with your MP?

The Chamber gives you direct access to regional MPs and those with influence in Westminster. We actively encourage businesses from every sector to take part in discussions, which then helps us to support the needs of your business. Attend our popular briefings with MPs from various political parties to discuss local business and infrastructure challenges.
