The Chamber is seeking nominations for its Board and Policy Council Apr 6 2018 | The Chamber

Aberdeen & Grampian Chamber of Commerce is seeking nominations for its Board and Policy Council.

We are looking for people who are as passionate about our aim of creating the buoyant, diversified regional economy that will enable our members and their employees to be more successful and prosperous, as we are and keen to actively help us deliver it.

Recent activities such as our lobbying on business rates, the Vanguard initiative, providing a positive narrative and bringing major events to the area demonstrate the difference that a proactive Chamber can make.

As non-executive directors, as well as providing strong governance, we ask Board members to bring sector expertise, use their networks to ‘open doors’, help with intelligence gathering and ensure we achieve our overall aims and targets.

We would particularly like to encourage nominees from members in the third sector, skills, people/recruitment, finance and business.

Policy Council members are expected to have a keen interest in the economic development of the region and to provide sector and geographic knowledge to assist AGCC in formulating, prioritising and reviewing our policy plan and activities.

We would particularly encourage nominations from people involved in the hospitality, digital, transport, fishing and tourism sectors.

We are also keen to encourage our next generation of business leaders to get involved in both the Board and Council, helping to bring new perspectives.

As a privately funded, not-for-profit organisation these roles are, of course, unpaid but provide the opportunity to make a real difference as well as providing personal development and great networking opportunities.

Here you can find an overview of what it entails being on our Board and here for our Policy Council.
