HAMPSHIRE Chamber of Commerce is to strengthen its lobbying clout and member services following a strategic review of operations.
Moves include a reshuffling of some staff positions, a recruitment drive, a new Southampton office, and closer alignment with the national chamber network.
The review followed a member survey.
‘We gained some excellent feedback which we have put into a clear, actionable road map,’ said Ross McNally, Hampshire Chamber’s executive chairman.
‘The steps we are taking are designed to strengthen our lobbying influence in what is a very uncertain period for business.
‘At the same time, we are enhancing our ability to be responsive to the needs of our members. It’s about providing tailor-made, beneficial and relevant activities to help the Hampshire business community to prosper.’
