The Chamber’s policy team works to ensure our members’ views on policy issues are represented at all levels of government.
Our approach is apolitical, balanced by our broad membership’s views and grounded on reputable research.
We work with politicians, civil servants and government departments, from local authorities to Holyrood and from Westminster to Brussels, in order to provide added value to our members.
All our campaigns are developed through engagement with members.
We do this work so you don't have to.
Take part in our politician and member engagement events or join our sector network groups or policy council.
Case in point: Business Rates
Starting in April 2017, there will be many changes in the taxes that business pay – among these are business rates.
The new revaluations have been published and many businesses in the North-east are facing increases on their business rates for 2017-2022, some of up to 200%+.
Are you in the same situation? Help us represent you as we ask for support from government.
"I appreciate the comprehensive briefings that my colleagues and I receive from the Chamber, which often help me formulate the contributions that I make in Parliament.
It is great to see the AGCC policy team at many events in the North-east and beyond, acting as ambassadors and highlighting the needs of businesses in this region.
I am convinced that this person-to-person engagement does a great deal in promoting the policy priorities of AGCC and its members."Kevin Stewart, MSP
