What we do

The Godalming & District Chamber of Commerce exists to help promote a positive business environment for all of our corporate sectors in the local area.

We meet regularly to discuss issues that directly affect members and their businesses. The meetings are chaired formally to provide an efficient exchange of ideas but are also run in a way that encourages participation from those attending. Members are given updates on local initiatives promoting a healthy local trading environment and action undertaken on their behalf. A record of the meeting will soon be made available to members through this website.

The Chamber organises networking meetings and business seminars. These enable members to further their knowledge and gain from the experience of others who have an understanding of issues affecting them. They also help to facilitate networking and the creation of new business opportunities.

We also represent our members with local government and other institutions on issues that directly affect businesses in the area. Representatives of some of these institutions are Chamber members and others may be invited to attend Chamber meetings to have the opportunity to directly interact with our members.

We are very active in organising events that increase awareness with the general public as to the businesses, attractions and public services available locally to increase visitor numbers and footfall for Godalming and its surrounding areas.  We also actively seek to provide a public relations service on behalf of our group of members to publicise local news and activities to the media.
