Chamber Code of Conduct

Throughout 2024 we’ve been talking to our members about the things that make the Chamber great – our inclusiveness, our passion for the North East and our integrity.

With so many of our members doing great work in the space of positive, progressive corporate governance we’ve taken the opportunity of our forthcoming AGM to review and refresh our code of conduct. Download it here to find out more about how we can all put our shared values into practice in the future.
