  1. To decide Chamber policy, through discussion of proposals and initiatives from the local authority, central government, LEPs and other bodies.
  2. To act as ‘ambassadors’ for the Chamber in particular and the business community in general, and play a wider role in the area’s affairs (e.g. sit on other bodies and represent Chamber more widely)
  3. To feed views and information into the Chamber Group from members’ own organisations and sectors (this may lead to policy development, lobbying activity and media coverage, but also may simply be an exchange of information)
  4. To identify the needs of local business. Examples of issues discussed by the Chamber Group could include; Transport, Development, Economic Strategy, Education & Skills, Workforce Development & Local Enterprise Partnerships.
  5. To receive information (e.g. from Chamber staff, other partnership members, external organisations) and cascade that to their own organisations/sectors


The partnership will consist of predominantly private sector members representing key sectors, with appropriate co-option from public sector stakeholders.

This group will nominate directors to the Board of Directors of the West and North Yorkshire Chamber and elect the President and Vice President of Leeds Chamber.

Operational Arrangements

The group will meet quarterly and each meeting is expected to take an hour and a half.

The expectation is that members will sit on the Group for a minimum of 3 years with some being re-elected.
