Local Chambers of Commerce and the Local Chamber Advisory Groups (LCAGs)

Thames Valley Chamber of Commerce is one of the largest British Chambers of Commerce accredited Chambers in the UK and is the official accredited Chamber for Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Swindon.

The Chamber’s policy team campaigns regionally and nationally on behalf of businesses of all sizes, lobbying, making representation and exerting powerful influence on Government with the aim of creating a more favourable business environment.

Each sub-region of the Thames Valley has an individual Chamber of Commerce which serves to represent the local business community. Within this, an elected group of local representatives, called the Local Chamber Advisory Group (LCAG) meets and discusses local policy issues. The LCAG also helps shape and frame TVCC’s Local Policy Priorities and review the actions and objectives linked to delivering these priorities, as well as providing an active and positive voice for the businesses in the community where they serve and operate. These documents reflect the policy issues affecting the respective areas and the focus for the Local Chamber Advisory Groups in working to help address and resolve them. The policies within the statements should be read in conjunction with the Chamber’s wider strategic priorities outlined in our Business Manifesto.

Membership is open to all businesses, from sole traders and SMEs to corporate companies and PLCs.
