The FSB in Scotland campaigns for a better social, political and economic environment in which to work, learn and do business. With a strong grassroots structure, regular members' meetings and dedicated Scottish staff to deal with Scottish institutions, media and politicians, the FSB in Scotland is widely recognised as one of the most influential business organisations in Scotland.
Scottish members are encouraged to contribute to the FSB's policy-making process by taking advantage of the FSB's member-led infrastructure: from local Branches, through Regions, to the Scottish Policy Unit (SPU).
The 4 FSB Regions:
The FSB Region and Branch structure provides members with the opportunity to campaign on local issues, get involved with your local business community and make your voice heard on the issues which matter to you.
Each region has a Development Manager to campaign and advance the work of the FSB and serve the interest of the member at a local level.
The Public Affairs and Policy teams within the Scottish Press and Parliamentary Office represent member driven policy at all levels of Scottish public life, informing politicians, the media, Ministers and officials in the devolved institutions about the importance and profile of the Scottish small business community.
