Become a Patron
Patronage of the Hull & Humber Chamber of Commerce is a higher level of association with the Chamber. The Chamber is very appreciative of the support our Patrons provide. Becoming a Patron represents a valuable contribution towards enabling us to provide a wide range of services for our smaller Member companies, as well as raising the profile of your company.
The Chamber appreciates the support given by our Patrons, who make a valuable contribution towards enabling us to provide a wide range of services for our smaller member companies.
Patronage carries a subtle PR message. Your company is viewed as being a successful, established company, which is keen to help the local economy by enabling the Chamber to provide vital support to micro-firms within our Membership. It is seen, in part, as an altruistic gesture.
Benefits of being a Patron include (in addition to normal membership benefits):
