We have been delighted with the benefits from our strategic membership. The attention from the Chambers team has been excellent. They understand exactly what we are looking for from our membership and they tailor their service around that. The networking opportunities that strategic membership has afforded us have been great. In particular we have had a number of Armed Forces Covenant signings with employers who want to show their support for the for the Armed Forces family. We have established relationships with them that we now look to develop and we aim to continue broadening and deepening our network .
