Have you ever considered joining Chamber but aren’t entirely sure of what we can offer you? Look no further! Read below what we do…
Benefit 1: Supporting You in an Enterprise Culture
The Guernsey Chamber of Commerce is a powerful force for good within the Bailiwick.
The Chamber represents a significant business voice across the island – in fact, we are the largest business organisation in Guernsey with over 18,000 individuals involved!
Our impact comes through government lobbying, business support, community engagement, and first-hand interaction between our 600+ corporate organisations.
Benefit 2: Communications
Chamber business members benefit from a login to the Chamber website where you can publish your own news, appointments, editorial content and events, as frequently as you would like. You will also gain visibility from being included in our online directory with a link to your website, contact information and company bio.
Your directory information will also feature in CONTACT magazine. This Guernsey Chamber owned coffee table magazine has a six month shelf life, offering island-wide exposure for your business, published twice a year.
Upon joining Guernsey Chamber, your organisation will also be included in a new member feature in the next issue of CONTACT magazine in addition to your directory listing.
Along side Contact Magazine, Guernsey Chamber contributes 6 pages to the Guernsey Press ‘Business Brief’ magazine each month. We welcome ad hoc editorial content from our members to be included. If you are a member and would like to submit content or enquire, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Benefit 3: Chamber Events
All Chamber members are entitled to FREE entry to a vast calendar of events at Chamber HQ (this applies to ALL employees in your organisation!). Alongside this, all members receive a discounted rate for tickets at the popular Chamber monthly lunches at the OGH.
Guernsey Chamber are proud to host and arrange around 50 events each year. These events allow members to connect, network, gain business insight and facilitate business growth. Chamber HQ has become a well-connected hub that provides regular networking and referral opportunities.
Our largest event of the year is the Chamber Black Tie Annual Dinner. In 2020 we invited Ant Middleton to speak on ‘Staying Motivated’ and welcomed 500 attendees with members receiving a great discount on tickets.
