Objectives of the Association

• To promote better acquaintance and closer association among the members in order to encourage co-operation, exchange of business and inter-trading.
• To maintain the highest levels of integrity in all our business dealings.
• To keep fellow members informed wherever possible of any business opportunities.
• To maintain communication between this Association, others in the UK and those overseas, with the object of providing mutual contacts and information for members when required.
How the Association Works
The membership is drawn from leading industrial, commercial and professional organisations, each of whom can be represented by up to four constituent members.
Members’ companies are elected from a wide range of business categories. The classification should be the core business of the member company.
General enquiries about membership should be referred to the Chairman or Co-ordinator who will determine the availability of new membership in the relevant category. Membership will usually be limited to no more than two companies in the same business.
Each branch holds monthly meetings at a prestigious venue in keeping with the stature of the organisation. Meetings have a variety of formats: breakfast, lunch or dinner, based upon the preferences of the local branch members. However, all foster the ambiance for making new contacts, listening to informative, entertaining guest speakers and, of course, doing business.
Members are encouraged to attend at least sixty percent of the local meetings and hospitality programmes. A National Ball is held annually in London.
Each branch is run by an elected committee under the direction of their local Chairman and Co-ordinator. The national movement is co-ordinated by a steering committee which is represented by each branch and chaired by the President of the EAGB.

The Executives Association was founded in San Francisco in 1915, and is now particularly strong in North America, with flourishing Associations in all major cities. Introduced to London in 1929 as an exclusive business luncheon club, the idea prospered and there are now thriving Associations in other areas.
