We have developed our London Forums as the core of our London-based policy programme and currently operate 12 sector-based and cross-industry forums.
These forums help develop policy initiatives and make direct representations to the US and UK governments on issues of wider concern to the body of our membership. Additionally, the forums provide suggestions for our events programme, and are responsible for helping develop a substantial part of the BritishAmerican Business London events calendar.
Planning committees from each forum meet on a regular basis to discuss current policy issues, to plan and develop content for events of interest to the wider membership. Participation in planning committee meetings is open to all members of BritishAmerican Business. To view the schedule of upcoming planning meetings, please click here.
