Influential Opportunities

Patron membership offers a very limited number of businesses an exclusive opportunity to develop a profile their competitors would envy and optimum access to the Chamber network’s power, influence and knowledge.

The Chamber Patrons scheme is aimed at businesses who want to take a leading role in the local business community to raise their profile and influence.

Our Patrons are influential and prominent organisations who share the values that drive the Chamber forward.
