Amber Valley Business Club

The Amber Valley Business Club is an informal networking group of businesses across the Amber Valley that meet up once a month. Business club members come from diverse business backgrounds but have one thing in common - they all recognise the benefit of business networking. The club is supported and co-ordinated by the borough council but is run for the benefit of local businesses.

Membership of the club is open to any individual or organisation doing business in Amber Valley no matter how big or small, and no matter what products or services they sell. Our membership ranges from individual tradesmen to manufacturers and retailers through to professional service providers. The majority of club members come from small businesses with typically less than ten employees, but membership is open to all sizes of business.

The business club offers:

  • Value for money, the business club membership is simply there to cover venue and catering costs and is not run for profit
  • Informal networking in a friendly and welcoming environment - share ideas, pick up new contacts and promote your business.  The Amber Valley Business Club is an open and friendly network; businesses attend to represent their business, with no expectation for businesses to make representations/seek business for others.
  • Promote offers/services available
  • Relevant and interesting guest speakers.
  • The chance to meet with representatives from Amber Valley Borough Council and other business support groups.
