Chamber of commerce keeps pace with the times

In its bid to be at leading edge of local business representation, the Hungerford Chamber of Commerce is re-launching. The pace of commercial change has never been more dynamic. To reflect this ever-shifting tableau, the Chamber of Commerce is re-focusing its operations with changes to its structure and membership so that it can continue to help the local retail and commercial community to thrive.

The Chamber is seeking to re-energise its activities to give members the opportunity not only to promote their business, but to encourage the crucial interaction between member companies so fundamental to growth and opportunity. Key to this will be to make regular meetings more vibrant occasions, with a published list of speakers and events which directly target challenges and opportunities throughout the year. To this end, a new website has already been built and the existing committee are implementing a survey of all local businesses which is designed to solicit information from them which will directly inform changes in the organisation of the Chamber of Commerce to help it best meet the needs of its members.

The results of this survey will be used to put together a proposal for presentation at the AGM in March. It is vital that you HAVE YOUR SAY, so please complete the survey clicking on the link

 

 A survey of all local businesses

In addition, the Chamber invites everybody, members and interested businesses, to attend their Annual General Meeting on Thursday 7th March, 6.30-7pm at The Three Swans on the High Street. At the meeting, the new structure of a rolling Chairperson, the re-writing of the Chamber's constitution and the ratification of changes will be debated.

In the meantime it would be helpful for anyone that has constructive input to please contact Nigel Perrin on 07867 896855 or email chairman@hungerfordchamberofcommerce.co.uk
