CHASS exists to influence government and business. All our activities are aimed at increasing the influence of our sector when it comes to the setting of policy objectives: for instance, we actively advocate for more representation on the internal boards and committees that fine-tune policy settings.
Part of this process involves writing letter to ministers, shadow ministers and the bureaucracy. Occasionally these letters are made public.
