1. Membership

1.1 What are the benefits of joining?

Joining the Business Club will offer you a networking experience like no other. You’ll be able to enjoy informative business sessions, entertaining talks from guest speakers and much more. Standard Membership includes guest speakers, networking sessions and advertising on the official club website.

Or how about premium membership for a package that gives you even more in return? You will receive all the benefits of standard membership, plus two season tickets to use as you please - perhaps shared among the workforce or as a reward for employee excellence - and two boardroom guest passes to mingle with Alty directors and those of the opposing team at a home fixture of your choice.

Standard is priced at £40p/m (+vat) and Premium at £60p/m (+vat)

1.2 How can I pay?

Monthly Direct Debit via GoCardless or Annual Payment to the Club directly.

Joining is easy and quick, as you are able to sign up using Monthly Direct Debit via GoCardless which allows us to collect monthly membership payments from you automatically. Or alternatively get in touch with the Club to pay annually.

1.3 Are all events covered as part of membership?

All monthly events are included in membership. There is a cost attached to various special in-person events such as Golf Days, special lunches & dinners etc.

1.4 Is membership for a company or an individual?

Membership is for the company, not an individual, meaning it is fully transferable and anyone can attend the events.

1.5 What if I cannot attend an event?

You are more than welcome & encouraged to send another representative from the company to attend (remember the membership is companywide) or even a client or connection so the place doesn’t go to waste! Attending regularly is one of our key tips when it comes to maximising a return on membership.

1.6 How do I maximise membership?

As part of the welcoming process of becoming a member, our team will arrange a strategic call with you to understand or define your networking objectives, learn about your company and get a picture of the types of businesses you are looking to meet. Throughout membership, our team will also be on hand to work with you, whether that’s from a marketing perspective or at events, as well as understanding how it is working for you and if there is any more you can get out of it.
