If you’re a local business, why bother joining Lochaber Chamber of Commerce?

As people who work in the Chamber, we think the reasons are obvious but, if you’re busy focusing on the vital work of the day-to-day running of your business, it’s all too easy to overlook the benefits that joining your local business organisation can bring.

So what’s the point of the Chamber? Put simply, it’s an easy way to get involved in your local business community, make valuable connections, access business expertise and promote your business.

Lochaber Chamber of Commerce is well known within the Scottish business community as an extremely proactive and involved organisation that punches above its weight in standing up for the needs of our business community.

Join us and you benefit from the combined clout of being part of a respected business organisation when it comes to getting your voice heard.

Our informal networking events are also a great way to get involved and make business connections that would be difficult to do otherwise. We’ll keep you in the loop with business developments and news and help you spread the word about developments in your business through our well-read monthly e-newsletters.

We hold a regular calendar of free member-only seminars and workshops focusing on a range of relevant business issues, and your business will have the opportunity to showcase your work at our regular monthly members’ lunches.

Lochaber Chamber of Commerce also promotes Lochaber as a visitor destination and runs the very successful ‘Outdoor Capital of the UK’ website and social media channels. If you’re involved in any aspect of tourism then your Chamber membership automatically includes you in the Outdoor Capital of the UK listings.

Think it’s going to be expensive? Membership subscriptions work on a sliding scale depending on the size of your company, but start at just £95+VAT for a sole trader. A typical small business with up to five employees pays £125+VAT.

Give us a call or pop in to the office above the Visitor Information Centre in Fort William High Street. We’d love to have a chat about how we can help your business. If you’d like to find out more about membership, please give us a call on 01397 705 765 or visit
