The Committees

Five committees have been set up as sounding boards and support for the Secretariat. The committees remain subordinate to the Swedish Chamber of Commerce. They meet on a quarterly basis and assist in the executive, financial, marketing and membership areas of the Chamber. Each committee has one chairperson and the meeting is organised through an agenda which is distributed in advance of the meeting.

The Executive Committee

The role of the Executive Committee is to prepare the work of the committees for scrutiny by the Council and to act as a sounding board and support for the Managing Director of the Chamber. The Chair heads the Committee.

The role of the Marketing Committee is to ensure that all Members and prospective Members are aware of the benefits of membership. Furthermore, it generates ideas and content for the Chamber's many events. The members of the Committee help the Secretariat in formulating marketing, communication and public relations strategies.
