Sara’s Blog: We need your input to help shape our future

/ / Uncategorized

The Chambers has only ever been as good as the sum of its Members, whose enthusiasm and drive give us the focus and the mandate to carry out our mission of being the complete business support and representative body for business in Staffordshire.

We are looking for active, influential Members who would like to take their involvement to the next level by joining Chambers’ Council, Board of Directors, or one of the Local Area Advisory Boards for Stafford or the Staffordshire Moorlands.

Serving on our Council, Board of Directors or a Local Area Advisory Board is a great way to keep abreast of what is going on in business and the wider economy. As a businessperson you can get directly involved and influence by representing the views of businesses in your community right up to the highest level.

In addition, you will make new contacts within your peer group and forge valuable business connections.

We welcome applications from all businesspeople who are Chambers Members, from all backgrounds from self-employed to large business in any sector.

Here are some quotes from existing board and council members:

“I would recommend council membership to any Chamber member who would like to get more involved in Chamber activity and in the local community.”

Margaret Michell

“Being a member of the Chambers council is an amazing opportunity to be a bridge between the Chambers team and the local businesses they support. It has enabled me to meet with some fascinating and inspirational people in the local business community.”

Lisa Cooper, Socially Grown

“I can honestly say that being a member of the Staffordshire Moorlands Board has totally transformed the way that I operate. It has introduced me to likeminded businesspeople who are willing to work together and collaborate on initiatives which make a real difference to all our businesses and the local economy.”

Jed Eatough, LSGK Accountants Ltd

“I joined the Chamber’s council because I believe that it is vital to be willing to serve in order to support local businesses and jobs – no more so than now when we face such major challenges.”

Jeremy Lefroy
