Mole Valley Chamber of Commerce
Mole Valley Chamber of Commerce are a not-for-profit organisation run by an elected Board of Directors. Our aim is to represent, promote and support all of our members, especially during the current economic climate that is the Covid-19 challenge of 2020 / 2021.
Chambers of Commerce provide a voice to the business communities they represent, amplifying their priorities and concerns. In every region and nation of the UK, Chambers and their members work to improve the local business environment in which they operate.
The Chamber of Commerce Network exists to support and connect companies, bringing them together to build new relationships, share best practice and foster new opportunities. Through practical, on the ground support they also help businesses trade locally, nationally and globally, including specific support for international trade.
The British Chamber of Commerce own mission derives directly from these principles:
* To represent and campaign for the interests of Chambers and Chamber Members
* To add value to the Accredited Chamber Network; and
* To operate sustainably and profitably to serve the Network.
Mole Valley are affiliated to Surrey Chambers of Commerce, who itself are affiliated to the British Chambers.
Our primary objectives at present are to:
REPRESENT AND SUPPORT – Members at all levels, including Parish and District Council, County Council and National Government via the MP for Mole Valley and through working with other organisations such as Surrey Chambers and the FSB.
TO GROW – membership of businesses, third sectors and charities operating within, but not necessarily located within, Mole Valley.
DEVELOP – Initiatives to support local businesses according to the current economic demands, ie Shop Local.
OPERATE – We continue to operate street markets in Leatherhead by arrangement with Mole Valley District Council and to support other areas within the District where a market might add to their festivities or special occasions. Surpluses arising from this activity are then invested back into the areas in which the markets operate.
