The Business Advisory Panel will be an independent, informal and voluntary body. The Mayor expects to appoint 10-15 members in the first instance, from across Greater Manchester and all communities, who will advise him directly.
The Panel will provide another opportunity for dialogue between the Mayor and local businesses, enhancing the partnerships Greater Manchester has pioneered with the private sector.
The Business Advisory Panel will complement Greater Manchester’s well established Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP). Sir Richard Leese, Deputy Mayor for Business and Economy and LEP member, Cllr Kieran Quinn, the GMCA portfolio Lead for Finance and Investment and Lou Cordwell, LEP SME Champion, will sit on the Business Advisory Panel to provide coordination across both bodies.
The application process closes on 24 November 2017, and the Mayor expects to announce membership of the Panel before the end of the year - https://www.greatermanchester-ca.gov.uk/bap
