The SME Forum is an opportunity for small and medium sized members to discuss the unique challenges they face. Output from these sessions is fed into ACE's policy and campaign work, including the Future of Consultancy programme.

In the past, the Forum has acted as the home for ACE's thinking on late payments and the supply chain, overcoming barriers to bidding for larger work on major projects, and welcoming new technology such as BIM. As well as this, the Forum plays a crucial role in ensuring ACE's services remain relevant to members.

As part of our support package for members to the coronavirus crisis, we are currently holding regular online meetings. As well as being informative, they offer a great opportunity to share challenges and discuss the issues your business is facing with your peers.

An open discussion chaired by Steven Hale of Crofton Consulting, we will be joined by guests from ACE's senior leadership team. The informal meeting currently takes place exclusively over Zoom (video/telephone conference).

If you would like to join please email Darrell.
