Can I become a forum member even though I am located outside Caerphilly?

How do I become a board member?

The Board is elected at each Annual General Meeting. Before the AGM, the Secretary sends out invitations to attend the meeting which includes a nomination form which you can use to put your name forward. The Board is always keen to involve members who want to help run the Forum, so if you want to help out in any capacity whatsoever, please contact info@cbforum.co.uk.

Which businesses are eligible for the Caerphilly Business Forum Awards?

The Awards are open to businesses of all sizes and in all sectors . You must have a base of operations within the County Borough of Caerphilly. Businesses which are part of a group based outside the County Borough or a branch or sub-office of a business based outside the County Borough are eligible.

In addition to the standard criteria used to assess all entrants, such businesses will also be assessed in the context of their local autonomy and the financial, managerial and other support they receive from their parent company.

The Awards will not necessarily be given to the businesses that have achieved the highest growth or greatest profit, although these will clearly be among the factors taken into account. We are also looking for achievement in many other areas of business.
