What is Representation?

Our mission is to be the voice and influence of Northamptonshire’s business community and represent their views and priorities to government and decision makers. We aim to create an environment that aids and supports the continued success and growth of our members.

Northamptonshire Chamber of Commerce acts as your voice to the policy-makers. Representing the interests of our members - we push for legislation that will make your business life easier and stimulate growth, and challenge legislation that holds you back. Our role is to explore and highlight issues that could and do hinder the continued economic growth, success and prosperity of Northamptonshire.

With colleagues at the British Chamber of Commerce (BCC), we campaign nationally on the economy, reducing red tape and regulation, and encouraging enterprise.
