Chamber Chat with Jon Powell

Advocacy and Representation

If you remember me from my time as President of your Chamber, you’ll remember how I never missed an opportunity to remind Chamber members about our three strategic pillars. We work tirelessly to Connect members with one another and to opportunities. We Support members with their challenges and help find solutions to their problems. And we Represent our members in Lancaster and Morecambe as the voice for local businesses and employers. Whilst we do a lot to Represent your views, a lot of it goes unseen. Attending countless meetings with the City and County Councils, member economic surveys, supporting research projects to influence future local and national policy.

One of the Chamber’s new year resolutions is to focus more on advocacy and Representation. To make sure our members have greater visibility of the work we do to represent your voice and further business interests in Lancaster and Morecambe.

If there is something you want to get off your chest then let us know! We are here to listen, to learn and to help. That is one of the main premises on why we were founded in 1897. We are here to make sure the voice of local businesses is heard in the big debates.
