No. Both are connected via the Business West umbrella but different in focus. Chamber membership of one of the Chambers under the Business West umbrella (Bristol, Bath, Gloucestershire, Wiltshire) gives you access to events, training, support and the network of all Chambers in the group. You can find out more about it here: https://www.businesswest.co.uk/join-our-chamber-community
Initiative membership is the next level up from Chamber membership. It is for organisations who want to join a community of socially responsible corporate citizens pledged make our region (Bristol, Bath & North East Somerset and Swindon & Wiltshire) stronger, fairer, safer and of course more successful.
If you would like to find out more about joining the Initiative let me know and I’ll connect you up with our Initiative Manager Victoria!
