Approaching the last quarter of a busy 2015, the Chamber has exciting plans for 2016. These include extending and adding variety to our successful networking programme.

Whatever your knowledge or experience, they can certainly be put to use on helping achieve the goals and objectives of the Chamber.

Whilst we welcome volunteers with any skills and experience, we are on the lookout especially for:

Creative thinkers with ideas for themes, speakers and events will be able to make a real impact. We are also regularly looking for help with registration and hosting.

In addition to business owners and senior employees, our committee includes two appointed Councillor representatives from each of the Amersham and Chesham Town Councils.
