Worthing and Adur Chamber of Commerce has been in existence since 1920. Since then, the governance and running of the Chamber has been overseen by a team of volunteers. More recently, the volunteer Executive Committee has been supported by a small, but enthusiastic, team of employees.
Currently, the Executive Committee is sworn in each year at the AGM in May. Members can continue to stand for election for as long as they wish. Each Executive Committee member has their own specialist area to oversee, which usually includes a Working Group. These Working Groups are also made up of volunteers who meet on a regular basis with the aim of delivering the Chamber’s business plan. The Chamber welcomes volunteers for any of the groups and would encourage you to get in touch should you wish to participate.
The Chamber also has a team of Ambassadors, whose role it is to improve communication within the Chamber, listen to members’ suggestions, and also attend events as representatives of the Chamber, welcoming members and other guests alike.
The Chamber is also fortunate to have a Patron: Gill Fielding. Gill is a self-made millionaire whose personal mission is to educate the nation to manage and improve their own financial position. You may know Gill from her appearance on Channel 4’s The Secret Millionaire when she gave away nearly £250,000 to good causes.
