Chamber Chat with Charlotte Ellwood

Enhancing Membership.

The last time I wrote in Chamber Chat, I was brand new into my role as membership officer; I was excited to get started meeting members and bring back a face & name to the role.

3 months down the line, what has changed? Well, since joining we have seen a new Head of Ops join the team, the launch of a Members Steering Group, several breakfast networking events, a spring lunch with Eden Project as well as a brand new ‘Members Only Area’ of the website with full business directory.

One of my goals for our members is to share each others news, successes, business offers, events and business stories. The weekly newsletter is still part of our chamber offer for members but we wanted to also provide a new, more permanent space for this information. The “Members Bulletin Board” is just that space. As a part of the Members Only Area on our website, all of our members are invited to send through content for this space; We have links to the Free funded courses at Lancaster & Morecambe College, information about ‘Lunch & Learns’ with TP Financial Solutions, HSE Advice & The Sales Lady’s podcasts, charity events and email addresses for work experience requests.

So the question is ” What could you share?”

We want to hear from you; this area is designed to have content driven by you, for you to shout about your business, your fantastic products & services, your events and even your vacancies or requests. The more we have, the more this space will be come a resource for our members to “check out” what’s going on with their business friends & neighbours, for people to use as a tool to support their business and for our members to really shout about what a great place Lancaster & Morecambe is to work. If you have something to share, you can either Submit Your News on the website or email news@lancaster-chamber.org.uk for myself and the team to pick up.

This is just the first step in a series of exciting plans for Lancaster & Morecambe Chamber; Our goal is to offer members a wide variety of opportunities to promote their businesses, receive exclusive offers & discounts, network across the district, access training & development as well as provide first class signposting and support.

If you would like to find out more about our plans, have a chat about membership or want to find out how you can get involved, either give me a call on 01524 381331 or pop me an email at Charlotte@Lancaster-Chamber.org.uk.
