Following the AGM held in 12th April, it was decided that the Dorking Chamber would continue without a formal President and Exective and without renewal of members subscriptions.
The Directors and Company Secretary remain in post and the Limited Company will continue but in a dormant state.
It was further decided that businesses in Dorking still require somewhere to come for in respect of business advice and that there are matters which Dorking businesses not involved and paying a levy to the Dorking Bid might want to air their views on matters pertaining to the town and their enterprises – So the concept of an informal meeting every two months will be retained where past Executive Members and others can get together to talk about Dorking matters.
If you are not a member of Surrey Chamber and wish to retain that link with their training and seminars – they are offering a 50% discount to Chamber Members for their first years membership (if they are not already Surrey Chamber Members).
We are sorry that the Dorking Chamber is no longer able to continue in the manner which it did in the past, the Dorking BID has changed the face of business support in the town and the fall in our paid up membership means that the chamber if unsustainable financially.
