Members Update

Members Update

As you may know, the Articles of Association of the Chamber are being updated to reflect current practice. I have been asked to remind all members that membership of all categories requires, in effect, members to pay up to the maximum amount of five pounds Sterling towards the costs involved in winding up the Chamber in the event that that unlikely event was to occur while you are a member or within a year thereafter.
