About Yeovil Chamber
Yeovil Chamber is the premier networking and business support group for Yeovil and the wider business community.
People like to do business with people. Yeovil Chamber’s unique model and unrivalled outreach across local government and business sector stakeholders, delivers regular opportunities to meet other like-minded business people; to influence the key decision-makers, and above all, to stay informed and receive vital support for your business – whatever its size and sector.
What We Deliver
The BIG voice for the business community since 1920. Our unique dual function provides regular, high-quality, informal, and informative networking opportunities, PLUS real-time business support, via our unrivalled outreach to local, regional, and national government.
Unlike many other networking groups, we place no limit on the number of member businesses from any sector. Members range in size from one-person SMEs, to major employers such as Leonardo Helicopters. We deliver a wide range of regular high-quality events and briefings, details of which are regularly updated at http://www.yeovilchamber.org/events/.
Views and concerns of members are channelled directly to the right people who can make change, via our links with key Stakeholders; Town, District & County Councils, and our MP. Yeovil Chamber is widely considered as part of the local decision-making process, and an influence on local policy. South Somerset District Council regard Yeovil Chamber a Key Stakeholder in their economic strategy delivery. Our work with Yeovil College has resulted in members mentoring students and is aligning the curriculum to the employment market.
We exist to support business and individuals who want to improve their own businesses and to encourage improved performance in the local economy.
By becoming a member of the Chamber, you will be an active partner in our vital business community, and a stakeholder in an organization vigorously representing business interests.
To be the natural, go-to organisation for the Yeovil business community, and through increased membership, to continually, and visibly improve the local business environment.
