There are 4 key strands to our offer:
WHAT CAN CUMBRIA CHAMBER DO FOR ME?
Our aim is to help your business grow and prosper. Our events programme attracts hundreds of businessmen and women every year, offering networking, business development and sponsorship opportunities. Through our partner programmes we have access to skills development and knowledge, to give you support in developing your business. We also have a range of discounted products and services. In short, we aim to be your partner in business - one that you can turn to for any issues - and point you in the right direction of the most relevant advice.
HOW CAN CUMBRIA CHAMBER HELP ME WIN NEW BUSINESS?
Networking is one of the most effective ways of winning new business. Many business leaders argue that the lions-share of their new business is achieved through proactive networking. Through our events programme you will discover numerous opportunities for making new business connections. The fact that you might be a networking novice is no handicap - Chamber staff are always on hand to make introductions allowing you to network successfully.
WHO DOES CUMBRIA CHAMBER REPRESENT?
We are the independent voice of Cumbrian business. We represent the interests of our members across Cumbria, from all sectors of industry and all sizes of organisation. With local representation through our offices in Carlisle, Kendal, Whitehaven and Barrow, Cumbria Chamber of Commerce is your local Chamber.
WHO DO WE AIM TO INFLUENCE?
We aim to identify and then influence key policy and decision makers. The Chamber has strong relationships with local and central government, and other institutions whose policies impact on the profit and progress of Cumbrian business.
Through our policy development and campaigning we address issues central to making Cumbria a fertile ground for business. We are Cumbria’s independent business voice and campaign for our members' commercial interests.
IS JOINING CUMBRIA CHAMBER VALUE FOR MONEY?
Our aim is to create the opportunity for you to save up to £500 in your first year of membership. With annual subscriptions starting from £100 +VAT, membership of Cumbria Chamber represents excellent value for money.
Membership of the Chamber is corporate - it is the company which is the member rather than an individual selected to represent them. Therefore, all of your employees are free to use the Chamber's extensive services. For members, all of our services come at discounted rates, many are free, and many are exclusive to members.
Many businesses are already Cumbria Chamber of Commerce members. We believe this is testament to the value for money that Chamber membership provides.
