Members in Focus

Members In Focus – A promotional initiative from the Dungarvan & West Waterford Chamber

Valuing local business awareness the D&WW Chamber stresses that the more we know about each others services and products, the stronger we are as a collective. With networking in a physical sense stalled due to COVID 19 the Chamber is taking this opportunity to turn a spotlight on some of our members and the services they provide. There is such an array of local talent and specialist skill in our membership – this initiative is a way for members to quickly get familiar with what’s on offer throughout our wider business community.
