Chamber members will also have access to being the first to sign up to SBA Training Hub’s webinar series and also discounted rates for full training courses, delivered by experienced business professionals.

Bridgwater Chamber Manager Diogo Rodrigues said, “We’re delighted to collaborate with SBA CIC, enhancing the Chamber’s commitment to our members.
