Benefits of Chamber Membership
There are many benefits of a Chamber membership. We can save you time and money and introduce you to potential customers, partners and suppliers. As a member of the Chamber, you will also receive discounts on our events and services.
Watch a short Animation which explains exactly what we do here.

Breakfast and Networking Meetings, Workshops Seminars and Social Events
Including an Annual Growing Business Trade Fair, Community Business Awards Event and our ever popular St George’s Day Luncheon. The Chamber events are topical, lively, and well attended. Events are held at a variety of interesting venues throughout the district and are arranged to avoid disruption to the working day.

Free Place at your first Chamber Event
A Bulletin is one of the many benefits of a Chamber membership, keeping you fully informed of Chamber and local business events, issues, and local or national legislation. Editorial from individual members is welcomed and the Bulletin is available in hard copy or email format.
A Professional Advisory Service
The Chamber does not replace professional advisors; it does however help members expand or resolve business problems, via free introductory consultancy to legal, financial, accounting, tax, surveying, employment, marketing and general management specialists.
Members can use the Chamber’s regular mailing to members for low cost, effective leafleting.
The newly re-designed Website can link directly from the Chamber to Member’s own sites.
Members can benefit from using the Chamber logo on letter headings and business cards.
We work closely with other Chambers, especially the Hertfordshire and Watford Chambers. Both operate an export/import service and offer this to St Albans district chamber members: see more details.
