Yeovil Chamber Projects

Our Executive Team are involved in a wide range of business sector activities, to assist with driving economic prosperity for all.  This is how our outreach works.  Chamber connections empower our members with knowledge and insight.  The informed influence gained gives Chamber it's teeth, and the big voice for the business community.  Chamber actively encourages our members to take part and become part of these 'big-picture' relationships and processes, aimed at driving prosperity for all.
