PUBLISHED: 09:34 23 January 2009 | UPDATED: 09:22 13 July 2010

THE North Norfolk Business Forum is to drop its £25 membership fee.

“To ensure that NNBF does what it set out to do - that is to provide a vibrant sounding board and a support and ideas network for local business men and women - we need to engage with as many and as wide a cross-section of local businesses as possible, explained chairman Ian Doughty.

“To ensure that NNBF does what it set out to do - that is to provide a vibrant sounding board and a support and ideas network for local business men and women - we need to engage with as many and as wide a cross-section of local businesses as possible, explained chairman Ian Doughty. “We have a strong core membership, but need to reach out to more people and take measures to make our organisation more accessible.”

Doing away with the membership fee from April 1 would help the NNBF, which receives funding support from the North Norfolk District Council, and North Norfolk Community Partnership, achieve the widest possible membership, and encourage maximum participation.

In place of the membership fee, a charge will be levied for attendance at each NNBF event. For those who attend regularly, there will be an option to pay a one-off fee of £25, which will give them free entry to all 2009 events.

“I hope everyone feels that this is a fairer way of contributing to the support and benefits offered by the North Norfolk Business Forum, and the Board is looking forward to a strengthened organisation in 2009,” said Mr Doughty.
