Chamber Vision and Values
Vision: A catalyst to support and grow a vibrant Somerset economy
- Member Focused
Chamber members have access to a range of services such as:
- Events – we organise over 60 events each year of varying scale and size. This supports and informs business and helps strengthen supply chains. We believe this is at the heart of our Chamber so we offer specific events for members.
- Representation – this is a service at the heart of Somerset Chamber and is largely to support members. We take on issues that affect the whole business community and lobby at all levels of policy decision making.
- International Trade – we encourage international trade working with the Department of International Trade.
