Business Executives Council – Meetings that engage


Membership in IVA’s Business Executives Council gives companies and their employees numerous opportunities to be involved in IVA activities. 

At the Business Executives Council’s breakfast meetings business leaders gather to discuss topical issues. In IVA projects the business community can influence the debate and share their knowledge and experience. Member companies can also take part in various events, workshops, hearings, seminars and field trips.

The Business Executives Council has just over 250 member companies and organisations from industry and the service sector, ranging from global corporations to small businesses and organisations. The Business Executives Council gives IVA a strong foothold in the business community and provides long-term financial support. Members of the Council help to develop IVA programmes.
