Events and Networking

Councils and Committees

Part of the formal CBI governance process. All meetings are private and open only to Councillors. At these meetings we bring together members working within a similar industry, sector, region, or nation to help shape CBI policy - which in turn gives the CBI its mandate on the issues that business faces. Any Member interested in joining a council or committee should contact their CBI Account Manager. Typically elections for seats take place once a year.
