DavidThe President's Heartbeat Message

1st January 2017

Another year has passed with it’s opportunities and challenges, punctuated with the EU Referendum and the shock election of Donald Trump as US President. The long-term effects of these changes remains to be seen, but I hope that you were able to make good progress with your business activities during 2016. I also hope that you were able to take time out over the festive season to recharge your batteries, and can hit the ground running, prepared for the opportunities and challenges that 2017 will bring.

Welcome to the Yeovil Chamber of Trade & Commerce website

Yeovil Chamber is the BIG voice for business and commerce for local, regional, and national issues; actively promoting new opportunities for our members, and the wider business community.

To keep members informed and empowered, our Executive Committee meets monthly, and regularly engages with Stakeholders such as Yeovil Town Council, South Somerset District Council, Somerset County Council, Avon & Somerset Police, the Western Gazette, and our Member of Parliament.  Through these relationships, we are able lobby and fight for the business community, all the way up to Westminster, on hot issues such as business rates, and broadband provision.

Our work with Yeovil College on the Employer Ambassador initiative, encourages business people to mentor students and assist with aligning the curriculum to match local employment needs, and has brought patronage from Yeovil College.

Chamber now has a direct influence on the delivery of the economic regeneration budget, through our work with South Somerset District Council, and our board membership of the Yeovil Vision group.

Our membership of the Yeovil One Crime & Safety Team sees Chamber working with the PCC, senior police officers, and town centre security officers, to keep crime rates low, and keep anti-social behaviour out of Yeovil town centre.

We also offer a variety of regular, high-quality, and informal networking events to entertain, inform, and promote networking opportunities between business people.

Whether you are a one-person enterprise or a large employer, membership of Yeovil Chamber can make a difference!
