About Lichfield Chamber of Trade and Commerce
Founded over 125 years ago, Lichfield Chamber of Trade & Commerce provides a voice for every business located in or servicing Lichfield District.
Run by the members for the members, our mission is to create a community of local businesses, working collaboratively to grow an enterprising and prosperous city and district.
Building a Stronger Business Community Together
The Chamber brings together the vibrant and diverse trades, manufacturers, retailers and professionals of Lichfield to keep you informed of local issues and initiatives and to provide representation to the local government. We believe that by working together we can positively impact our city.
Every member of the Chamber is provided a platform on which they can educate and promote their business to each other and the wider area. By pooling commercial and technical knowledge, supporting endeavours and events and working collaboratively, we support the business community as a whole.
We actively promote and facilitate networking between members, strengthening relationships and fostering goodwill and unity that help us to work as one, encouraging trade and prosperity in our community.
We welcome all new members to the Chamber and actively promote diversity and equality across our district. We recognise that every voice has experience and perspective to share that enhances our community.
Our vision is to provide an effective and influential voice to deliver your views to local government and be heard through the community, which we achieve by growing our membership numbers. By working together, we can promote enterprise, innovation and growth in Lichfield.
