IoD offers free memberships to firms in Harrogate

Thanks to support from Harrogate Borough Council using Government Covid-19 business recovery funding, the Institute of Directors is offering fully-funded memberships for businesses in and around the town.

Caroline Pullich, chair of IoD North Yorkshire, said: “The IoD exists to supports members to become better directors and develop their businesses. We do this by providing connections through our events, access to world-leading professional development courses and an influential lobbying voice to Government on the issues that matter most to businesses.

“During the pandemic, we helped to achieve important changes to insolvency rules and financial assistance for wage bills.

“We look forward to hearing from directors in the Harrogate district and welcoming them to our community. If you would like further information or would like to discuss any aspect of IoD membership, please get in touch.”

Trevor Watson, Harrogate Borough Council’s director of economy, environment and housing, said: “Helping business recover from the pandemic is important to the economy of the Harrogate district, and we’re pleased to be able to support IoD membership as part of that.

“Alongside our own and regional business support services, this new offer will help businesses to access advice that is tailored to their needs.”

To be eligible, directors must work for an SME business based in the Harrogate district and not have held an IoD membership within the previous two years from the date of enquiry. A maximum of two memberships are available per eligible business.

Applications are now open. Directors interested in taking up the fully-funded membership offer should contact senior branch manager Helena.drake@iod.com.
