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 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 on behalf of 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.
Member feedback tells us that smaller employers, the professional sector and SMEs join Chamber for the networking opportunities. Larger employers join Chamber to offer support and a presence within the business community. Large or small, and whatever the sector, membership of Yeovil Chamber can make a difference to your business.
