Today (Monday) the Accredited Chamber Network is launching its national Brand Campaign to showcase the value in being a member of an Accredited Chamber of Commerce. In an online video, Chamber members from across the UK talk about the ways in which their local Chambers have helped to support the success of their businesses.

Accredited Chambers of Commerce are always on hand to offer help and advice for business owners – whether that’s how to export to new markets overseas, hosting networking events, or providing essential services to help entrepreneurs run their businesses day to day.

Commenting, Dr Adam Marshall, Director of Policy at the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC), said:

“Being a member of a local Chamber of Commerce allows businesses of all sizes and from within all sectors stay well connected at both a local and national level. Chambers are unique, as they act as a front door in towns and cities in every part of the UK for the business community. There are no other bodies that do what Chambers do. Their services range from day to day support on how to run a business, to leading global trade missions to countries across the world that help members find new markets for their goods and services. Accredited Chambers of Commerce have the added support of being a part of the British Chambers of Commerce, giving businesses the chance to have their views represented at the highest level of government.

“We know that private sector businesses are at the heart of the British economy, driving growth and creating jobs and wealth. But with a little added support, they can go even further to transform their business into a global success story. Through this campaign we hope to raise awareness of the valuable work being carried out by Chambers of Commerce week in, week out, on behalf of the dynamic and hard working companies that they represent. With more than 100,000 like-minded members nationwide, there has never been a better time for businesses to join their local Chamber.”
