The Trade Association Forum is the only organisation of its kind and we have Government support as the first choice organisation to deal with trade associations. Our supporting department is the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). We are the ‘association of associations’ and we are here to provide you and your team with similar support to that which you provide to your members. Membership is open to any kind of membership body in the UK, all of which have many similar challenges in common in terms of their operational activities. Our range of services and activities are designed to assist you in the strategic development and day-to-day running of your organisation and we work hard to promote the excellent contribution that associations make to Government, industry and the wider public.
Further information about joining our community of associations can be obtained from Linda Cavender on T: +44 (0)20 3869 8650.
