CSIPC Membership

Membership

CSIPC meetings are free to attend and the cluster is run for the benefit of all businesses, the focus is less about formal membership and more about involvement.

We are a ‘not for profit’ organisation, limited by guarantee and managed by the steering committee.

If you would like to join as a member, click here. Once submitted, we will contact you regarding confirmation of your membership level.

When you join the CSIPC you are joining a strong consortium of local businesses. We are a dynamic, growing organisation and the main advantage of membership is the support of your peers.

Our members are business people. They help, advise, support, socialise and do business with each other. The cluster will keep you up to date with legislation; flags up funding and training opportunities; provides interesting speakers on topical subjects and business issues and holds ‘showcase’ events to encourage intertrading.
