NEW MEMBERSHIP PACKS HANDED OUT AT CREWKERNE AREA BUSINESS CHAMBER AGM

New Membership Packs were handed out at Crewkerne Area Business Chamber AGM, which took place on Wednesday evening in Bilbys coffee shop. For many members, it was the first time they had seen the new folders, featuring the organisation’s blue and white logo, strap-line, list of aims and objectives, new business card and benefits of membership with contact detrails. A handy inside pocket offers a promotion slot for business members and an up-to-date list of members. Crewkerne Area Business Chamber has nearly doubled in membership numbers since this time last year. Statistics show that 25% of members are in retail and 75% in other types of businesses. Treasurer Jaine Leaning presented a report of the organisations finances, that showed a healthy balance. Chairman Brian Forster gave a power-point presentation, highlighting the many areas in which CABC are ‘representing businesses in and around Crewkerne’. Brian spoke of future plans, including maintaining good relationships with other South Somerset business chambers, such as Chard Business Voice and Ilminster Chamber of Commerce and Industry. He also explained how working groups had been set up to concentrate on certain chamber issues and on projects for the future, which included ‘Business Mentoring’ and ‘Recruitment of New Members’, expected to begin in the New Year. A surprise presentation was made to Jane and Tristran Pinkney of Bilbys, for providing a wonderful venue with refreshments for CABC events and committee meetings, throughout the year. Jane Pinkney was presented with a bouquet of flowers by CABC Treasurer Jaine Leaning and Chairman Brian Forster presented Tristran with a bottle of wine. Officers and committee members were all re-elected by a show of hands. There are currently two officer positions vacant, that of Secretary and Vice Chairman. Any CABC members who would like to fill these positions, are asked to email: crewkernechamber@gmail.com
