GM Business Community Membership Launched by GM Chamber of Commerce

Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce is offering all businesses who are not currently Chamber members free access to it's GM Business Community. Powered by the GM Chamber this initiative will allow non-members free access to the network and support of the largest Chamber of Commerce in the UK.

The GM Business Community was set up in April 2020 to give non-members free access to the network and support of the largest Chamber of Commerce in the UK, with over 800 businesses now signed up.

Lucy Mulligan, Head of Membership at Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce, said: “We launched the Community as the coronavirus hit the local economy because we wanted to reach out to those businesses who were not members of the Chamber.

“The response to this initiative has been fantastic and shows how much businesses want to work together during these difficult times.”
