The British-American Business Council (BABC) is the largest transatlantic
business network, with 20
and 2,000 member companies based in major business centers throughout North
America and the United Kingdom. Its membership includes many of the world's largest multinationals, as
well as hundreds of middle market and smaller companies.
The BABC's chapters participate in the BABC to gain access
to a broader transatlantic business network and additional
Member Benefits, including access to business development, networking and marketing opportunities and to valuable business insights and intelligence.
On behalf of its members, the BABC also actively engages with government on a
broad range of policy issues to ensure that their actions take account of our
membersí views and interests. We maintain an ongoing dialogue with Government
on many of these issues and make direct, formal representations to Government
on issues of particular concern. For a summary of its recent policy actions click

information, please contact: Emanuel Adam, Policy and Public Affairs Manager.
The BABC has designated BritishAmerican Business to take the lead for the BABC on policy issues; and its Transatlantic Steering Committee oversees BritishAmerican Business's and the BABC's policy program.
How is the BABC Governed and Administered?
The BABC is governed by its Board of Directors (which includes a representative of each of its chapters, as well as its elected officers and CEO) and by its Executive Committee (which is elected by its Board). Its CEO also serves as CEO of BritishAmerican Business, and BritishAmerican Business provides the BABCís Secretariat.
