Chamber Policy of Support
The Chamber, as a member of the Armed Forces Corporate Covenant, has fostered a policy of support for Reservists and demonstrated the importance of transferable military skills and standards appropriate to the civilian workplace. Reservists receive the equivalent of up to ¬£18K per annum of high quality training, which is directly relevant to the civilian workplace. Employers also receive generous financial support for mobilised Reservists.
The Chamber is¬†represented at county and regional levels by Mike Frewer. Mike is also a member of the Management Board of the West Midland Reserve Forces & Cadets Association (WMRFCA).
