The Council

The Council constitutes representatives from a broad spectrum within the membership and is elected at the Annual General Meeting, with its members serving three-year rotations. The Council appoints the Managing Director, who is responsible for the day-to-day operations and ensures continuous updates on issues of importance to the Chamber. Five committees have been established to support its work; the Executive, Finance, Nomination, Marketing and Industrial Forum Committees respectively. You can read more about our governance in the Articles of Association.
