A series of six special FSB events based in both North Derbyshire and North Nottinghamshire has kicked off in Chesterfield.
The Maximise Your Membership roadshow showcases the benefits available to FSB members explained by a Membership Advisor.
Both voluntary and professional staff also present and explain how members can become activists within FSB and highlight the federation’s lobbying work in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire.
One attendee of the first Maximise Your Membership, held at Tapton Park Innovation Centre in Chesterfield, was Nigel Hudson of Stratagia.
Nigel said: “As a long-time FSB member, it was really good to attend the Maximise Your Membership event in Chesterfield. For more than sixteen years we’ve benefited from free banking and last year the savings the FSB made for us on insurance more than covered the membership fee.
“But it’s easy to forget all the other benefits the FSB offers, from legal documents and advice lines through to help with tax investigations and the medical welfare service.
“Then there’s the Federation’s terrific lobbying work to get a better deal for small businesses both locally and nationally. I hope other small businesses will find the time during 2019 to attend local events to make sure they’re not missing out.”
Five further events will take place on a monthly basis over the next five months of 2019.
All of the events are free and open to both members and non-members with refreshments also provided.
The next event takes place in Newark in early February followed by Matlock, Mansfield, Buxton and finally Worksop in June.
