Kent Invicta Chamber of Commerce
Are you in business?
If you are, you are undoubtedly looking out for any advantage you can gain in these difficult economic times to maximise the efficiency and effectiveness of your business operation.
Have you considered joining your local Chamber of Commerce? Chambers of Commerce in the UK are independent organisations providing support for all businesses from sole traders to multinationals in all business sectors.
Kent Invicta Chamber of Commerce is the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) accredited Chamber for the areas of Ashford, Canterbury, Maidstone, Sevenoaks, Tonbridge and Malling, and Tunbridge Wells, and also has many members in the Kent Gateway area. The Chamber provides full business support facilities and cost-effective business services to members, with conference and meeting facilities at the HQ in Ashford and at the Maidstone office.
The combined membership of over 1,000 businesses makes Kent Invicta one of the biggest Chambers in South East England and accreditation to the BCC further increases the support that Kent Invicta Chamber can give to members and the influence that it has in matters of representation with local, county and national authorities.
A major function of the Chamber is to represent and support the business community in all relevant matters with regard to local, county and national authorities. To this end the Chamber constitutes various committees, comprising Chamber members and representatives from local authorities and other organisations, with remits to continually assess, analyse and negotiate on specific subjects. For instance, the Economic Development Groups are currently actively involved in the formation of Development Plans for the county to monitor the expansion of area and help ensure that it takes place in a sustainable manner and is of benefit to the whole community.
One of the most significant strengths of the Chamber is the opportunities provided by a number of various networking events throughout the membership areas. Networking between people from a variety of business interests offers the possibility of promoting your own business and of learning from the experiences of others.
Some of the advantages offered by Chamber membership include:
Business Start-up Seminars
