Benefits of Joining the Chester Business Club

Chester Business Club was created in September 1986, originally as a male-only organisation with the focus on promoting the City of Chester area in terms of Trade, Commerce & Tourism. Now the Club has almost 200 leading businessmen and women as members, many with prestigious roles and well-known businesses.

In addition to its impact on local commerce, each year the Club raises thousands of pounds for local charities and holds prestigious events with speakers of outstanding calibre.

If you want to make a difference in Chester and have your business stand out from the others, this is the Club to be a part of.

Apply to Join

Joining is by application, which will be reviewed by our Executive Council. There are no restrictions of similar business type, as membership is for the individual, rather than the business itself. Once you are a Member, you can attend as many events as you wish, with no necessity to send a substitute if you cannot attend (but colleagues from your business will be most welcome to attend).

A Corporate category of Membership is also available, providing similar Membership benefits but for five or seven named persons from the same firm/organisation. Rates available on request.

There is an annual subscription, payable by monthly Direct Debit. There is a one-off joining fee of £100 for new and returning ex-members.

If you are interested in joining, please complete use the online form below or via a Member known to you. You will be contacted by the Club Secretary directly.

We look forward to welcoming you!
