Our relationships with decision makers at local, regional and national levels allow the voice of our members to be heard in the right place at the right time. Our Manifesto sets out the policy changes our members want to see, while our network of area meetings and policy forums ensure that our priorities match current business needs.
To support this work, we also regularly undertake research on the state of the regional economy, including our flagship Quarterly Economic Survey. In addition, we monitor and comment on key regional economic indicators as they are published.
We have a strong track record of influencing policy and raising the region's profile at all levels. This can only be achieved with the direct input of our membership. To find out how you can get involved, or to discover more about our campaigning work, follow the links on the left.
