With a series of monthly local Enterprise Clubs, regular networking events and business advice sessions across East Kent, as well as value added member to member offers, the Chamber Network can support your business throughout its lifecycle from start-up, development, growth and beyond.
Chambers of Commerce have evolved over the past 150 years and today they represent businesses large and small across the world.
In France and in other parts of Europe ALL businesses are required by law to join their local Chamber but here in the UK and elsewhere businesses simply make a choice to join as members by paying an annual fee. Member businesses in the UK therefore manage their own Chambers for their own benefit.
