Policy Forum

Policy Forum consists of members of the board of directors, as well as the chairs of the Edmonton Chamber's standing policy committees. The vice chair of the board acts as the forum chair and is responsible for coordinating the activities of the committees.


The objectives of Policy Forum are:

  • To coordinate the activities of the other policy committees and to ensure their work aligns with the specific priorities and overall strategic directions identified by the board of directors
  • To direct and approve, as necessary, policy positions on behalf of the board
  • To provide a dynamic interface between the policy committees and the board, allowing the organization to increase its policy making capacity and advocacy efforts and to ensure the various committees are organized around board determined priorities
  • To provide opportunity for committee members to increase their knowledge of the process, sharpen their skills and achieve a greater degree of satisfaction with a well managed process
