What is the role of the Forum?

The business sectors that individual trade associations represent may be unique but the organisational issues that they face are not.

Since its formation in 1997, the Trade Association Forum has been encouraging the development and sharing of best practice among UK trade associations and promoting the role of effective trade associations to government, industry and the wider public.

Through the Directory the Forum provides comprehensive links to information on UK trade associations and the business sectors they represent.

The Forum provides its members with a range of services and activities designed to assist them in the strategic development and day to day running of their organisations but is not a policy setting body.

Funded by its members, the Forum is an incorporated body operating with guidance from a Board of Directors consisting of trade association representatives.
