What is the Member Toolkit?

For new members it can be a little overwhelming knowing where to start with taking advantage of the Chamber member benefits. We have developed this toolkit to help direct new members to the key information quickly and to ensure that both the member organisation and its employees are fully briefed on how Chamber membership can help, both in a professional and personal capacity.

This toolkit contains suggested content for inclusion in internal company newsletters or email updates, social media posts and an email signature image and poster. It also includes a brief FAQ section on Chamber membership and a handy checklist to help members take steps to engage employees and colleagues.

 

Why have we launched it?

The toolkit has been designed to make it as easy as possible for the primary contact at a member organisation to roll out the Chamber membership benefits within their company. We’ve done the hard work for you so that you can just share elements of the toolkit with your staff, stakeholders and customers and start making use of the member benefits immediately.

As it is an organisation (rather than an individual) that joins the Chamber as a Standard, Premier or 1813 Club member, we also want to ensure that staff working within a member organisation are aware that they are a part of the Chamber and can enjoy the benefits. The toolkit should help the primary contact spread this message and ensure more than just one individual within the organisation engages with the Chamber.

 

What does it include?

 

The toolkit is split into the following sections;

  • Getting started checklist
  • Tell your staff – what’s in it for them
  • Tell your stakeholders/decision-makers – what’s in it for your organisation
  • Tell your customers – promote your member status externally
  • A link to the Member Toolkit download portal
  • Membership FAQs

 

I’m an existing member, can I still benefit?

Yes of course. The toolkit has been designed primarily to help new members get started with their membership. We would also encourage existing members to view the toolkit to ensure that your organisation is taking advantage of the various benefits available. We would urge you to remind your staff and customers that you are part of the Chamber. If you would like your relationship manager to take you through the journey and explain your benefits, please call us on 0845 603 6650
