To ensure that each member receives help that is relevant to its needs by segmenting the membership into sectors. Each sector has its own steering group, which represents members views and helps the Chamber address the issues and problems facing them.

Networking is an effective way of making new contacts and generating more business. Cambridgeshire Chamber organises a variety of events including monthly breakfasts and lunches, across the county, designed to get members talking and doing business with each other.
