About Black Country Business Clubs

The Black Country Business Clubs (previously Networking Clubs), ran by Black Country Chamber of Commerce is the latest initiative designed to bring together Black Country Chamber members from across the region. The Clubs will provide a platform where individuals can share their story, their business journey, and promote their services or products. The Clubs are exclusive to Black Country Chamber members, offering an additional ‘bolt-on’ opportunity for our current members.

Please note, The Clubs are based on a first come, first served basis with a final decision made by the Chamber’s membership team.

  • Each Club is restricted to just two businesses from any market sector or industry.
  • The Club’s business meetings will take place twice a month in each of the local authority areas, Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall & Wolverhampton.
  • Members of the Club may wish to join a single club or any additional clubs for the joining fee.
  • One business from the networking group will receive a ten-minute slot to promote their business at each meeting.
  • All attendees will receive a sixty-second stand up slot to advertise their business.
