Tamworth Junior Chamber
The Tamworth Junior Chamber is a sub-committee of the Tamworth Business Chamber. We provide opportunities for people between the ages of 18 and 35 who work in and contribute to our community, to attend events and to network create meaningful connections. We provide opportunities to gain new management and leadership skills consistent with those required to help develop your career and become a strong business leader of tomorrow.
Tamworth Junior Chamber Strategy
Tamworth Junior Chamber committee hosts at least 4 events per year (not including monthly Chambeers and Champagnes and other social/informal events). Typically, these consist of personal development events and social events. Each member is required to attend the Junior Chamber events where possible (we understand that you may not be able to make them all). Each event is assigned a Lead and Support Person from the committee, the remainder of the Committee provide support where needed.
