Membership types

Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce is Scotland’s capital city Chamber of Commerce. Established 230 years ago by Royal Charter our memberships are both exclusive and unique to any other chamber or business organisation across the world.  

Our membership offer continually evolves as we meet the needs of our local, national and international members whose aims are to develop new opportunities in the capital city and extending reach and influence across Scotland. We pride ourselves in supporting the ever changing requirements from a local start up business to a global brand exploring new business opportunities in our capital city and beyond.

To ensure we meet the requirements of organisations of different scale and type and to tailor our benefits and support accordingly, we have developed the following cluster of membership types.

Capital City Member

This membership is available to a business that has typically up to 10 employees. Member engagement, benefits and support are uniquely developed to support businesses of this type and scale.

Capital City Member (Charity / Association)

We have many charities and associations who already benefit from being a part of the capital city Chamber of Commerce irrespective of where they are located. This membership type recognises their specific needs.

Capital City Business Member

Based on market research and feedback, we continue to develop our membership package for businesses whose scale is typically up to 100 employees. The value and member engagement has been tailored accordingly. Although not an exact science, this membership type recognises the different needs of a larger scale business.  

Capital City Corporate Member

As our capital city continues to grow in profile and international reach, we have introduced this new membership category for any business or organisation whose desire is to play an even more proactive role in the future development of our capital city. This membership type is not only available to businesses whose employee numbers exceed 100, but to those who want to enjoy the extra levels of engagement, benefits and support.  We have already welcomed existing members who have traded up to this type of membership and continue to attract new members from across the UK and beyond.

With all our memberships it is important that we understand your business and your needs. Not only does this allow us to advise you on the membership type available but also to make sure we continually innovate to provide the optimum value and service from our membership options. 

We would be delighted to welcome you to Scotland’s capital city Chamber of Commerce and to be part of the next phase of your and our exciting future. If you are interested in joining please contact the membership team.
