BCCG is a privately funded, non-profit membership network organisation, which was founded in Cologne in 1919 and in Hamburg in 1921. It had been closed down in the early 1930s and was re-established in Cologne/Bonn in 1960. Her Majesty Ambassador to Germany is honorary patron of the chamber.
Members of the chamber comprise 900 professionals and companies, of which around 10% enjoy the special status Sustaining Membership. In addition to that, a number of members (up to the age of 40) have joined the Young BCCG programme. The network consists of around 4,000 personal addressees.
The BCCG is the largest British Chamber in Europe. Ten honorary regional committees support the BCCG and Young BCCG members in Germany and the UK.
Around 80 to 100 events are held annually in all regions with varying contents and scope in the interest of members and guests. The BCCG is a neutral platform at these events for speakers and topics. These networking events are mainly focused on economic, financial, legal, tax or other themes to offer members and guests opportunities to discuss their own questions regarding current issues.
The BCCG management office is located in Berlin. It supports the regions and is serving as liaison to political bodies and officials. For further information, please visit the BCCG website.
This is one of the major business networks that GISMA Business School is apart of, mainly utilised for networking and outreach.
