The OTCN Network

Together with the very largely volunteer leaders of our member groups and events networks, we have created a dynamic, two-way communications channel. Our ethos is to promote and help our members, which in turn supports businesses in Oxfordshire.

We aim:
  • To share ideas and best practice.
  • To share experience of common issues that local Chambers and similar groups are tackling in Oxfordshire.
  • To promote the principle of Town Chambers and similar business groupings.
  • To promote within the Network the activities of each of the partners in case there are common interests, possible links or, at the simplest level, date clashes to be avoided.
  • To engage members of these groups in a more cohesive way in lobbying local authorities and other decision makers.
  • To develop a web portal as a focal point for the activities of the Network partners, linked to the websites of those Town Chambers or business groups that have their own.
  • To increase the membership of our members with NetworkB and a business benefits package.
  • To scope and implement initiatives which support the Network and its members.
  • To co-ordinate and centralise a programme of events across Oxfordshire.
A full listing of our member groups is available on our Member Organisations page. Some are called Chambers; others have taken a different name. Each operates its own organisation in the way its own members choose.

The page events_network.htm lists our member events networks.

The driving force behind the Network is a not-for-profit-limited-company called OTCN Ltd. It is working on three main areas of work:
  • Promoting OTCN as a valuable channel of communication to and with business for public sector, volunteer, community and commercial organisations.
  • Delivering projects that support the key objective of OTCN.
  • Creating and/or facilitating the development of new events and networks where there are gaps in the market not filled by member organisations.
