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. It is the official accredited Chamber for the counties of Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Swindon.
The Chamber’s policy team campaigns regionally and nationally on behalf of businesses of all sizes. They lobby, make representation and exert a 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 who serve to represent the local business community. Within this, an elected group of local representatives, called the Local Chamber Advisory Group (LCAG) meet and discuss local policy issues.
The LCAG also helps shape and frame TVCC’s Local Policy Priorities. By reviewing the actions and objectives linked to delivering these priorities, they provide an active and positive voice for the businesses in the community. These documents reflect the policy issues affecting the respective areas and the focus for the LCAG 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 the Business Manifesto.
Membership is open to all businesses, from sole traders and SMEs to corporate companies and PLCs.
