We know that every business is different and that means different priorities, different pressure points, different aims and objectives and, of course, different budgets – The Chamber doesn’t take a one-size-fits-all approach to membership. Our membership criteria is based on the size of your business, so the amount you pay to become a member is relative - minimising risk and maximising value.
