Canberra Business Chamber leads the discussion on the issues that impact business and the ACT economy, now and into the future
The Chamber’s Policy Taskforce brings together ten industry leaders to advise and support us on key issues. They help us develop and implement long-term plans for a vibrant future. Taskforce members play an important role in the development of policies which, in turn, become the driving force behind the policy agenda.
Taskforce members are invited to join by the chamber board, based on their business leadership, influence, experience and connections to the broader community.
Members are appointed by the Chamber board and operate under terms of reference approved by the board.
