1.

Apologies for Absence

Apologies were received from Tracy Lacey-Smith who is still on maternity leave. 2.

Minutes of the previous meeting

These having been circulated prior to the meeting, were agreed. 3.

Matters Arising

We have broken down the debtors and also included a brief narrative at the beginning of the accounts. KPIs – YR has worked with AM to develop these. Sole trader rate has been removed from the website and application forms YR has a copy of the Masterplan for Dacorum Borough Council. YR attended the BCC Chief Executive's conference recently. We have a further Chamber of Commerce who wishes to become affiliated with us. We will look into costs etc. This is Rickmansworth Chamber. Clarification was required on the accounts regarding the Exemplas Shares. This was in fact a loan to the East of England Chambers. We will be looking into writing this off. 4.

Chairman’s Report

We have a new financial report format. NR has asked for trend and profit. Apart from redundancy costs, the trend looks positive. We have zero based the membership. NR still remains amazed that CEO’s keep in mind a number "real or not". With the cooperation of the BCC, we have reduced our membership to real. KPIs- we need to move to a more intelligent reporting. We need to see what is happening real time. We had a very successful Inspiring Hertfordshire awards Dinner. John Longworth was our guest. Porsche want us to come back. We need to set a date for 2014. Action: Set date for new Inspiring Herts Awards Dinner 2014 NR visited East Lancs Chamber recently. They are an exemplar in international training. Our next step is to look at what they are offering and possibly introduce at a minimum cost.


We are looking at joining COBCO. BCC are operating in companies such as Estonia. This would be offered as a service to our members. PB has a contact and will discuss off line. We are looking at changing our branding in line with BCC. This would show that we are an Accredited chamber of commerce. We will be reviewing our website. NR wants to set a strategic away day or afternoon where we can get the Board together. We will need to sign off our corporate and business plan. Input from the board will be very useful. We are talking to the town chambers about creating "Business Hertfordshire". This is a way of creating a hub and spoke for Hertfordshire. 5.

Finance

Our auditors are happy to top and tail what we normally do. Overall income for the year was down by £5k. There were increases in chamber services. Export was up 14.3% on documentation. We are looking to grow this as UKTI have given us a small marketing fund for working with them. Rent is particularly high. We had 3 years rent free and now pay £30k/year. YR is looking at University to get more funding from them to offset this. General office costs. Web site costs are £18k to cover a dispute with Simply Solutions. Going forward we will be looking at each area of profitability. We will also look at marketing expertise. Fixed assets include shares in Exemplas. YR to check with Wagtaffs regarding long term loan with Exemplas. YR will update the board of any changes.Action: This loan was in fact for East of England Chambers which no longer exists so the £1000 loan was written off During the year to 31/3/13, the company incurred a trading loss of approximately £29k – which broadly relates to the redundancy costs paid in respect of Tim. The fact we have trading losses means there are no profits – thus no tax to pay this year. The small bonus is that we may carry some of the loss back to 2012 and recoer the £350 paid in respect of that year. There are trading losses to carry fo4rward – broadly amounting to £26k. These losses may be used to offset future profits from the same trade (not bank interests receivable). Debtors - these are less than last year. We will have a more structured approach to this going forward. Lisa Hall asked about companies paying more than 30 days. It is taking longer to get money from exporters. There are a number of members who have resigned but we have reduced their rate to keep them as members. Lisa Hall asked about a percentage of the invoice for those paying more than 90 days. We have increased our prices by 15%. Arthur Merchant suggested we need to be more commercial. Cash in bank £353 not £315.


Creditors ÂŁ89k which helped carry the education team forwards 12 months. Most of this has dried up apart from ÂŁ9k

6.

Chief Executive Report

We are looking at KPIs Export - we are looking at who we have in the team. We want to help more businesses in the county and get them to use our services. There will be more events here and through UKTI. We are looking at adding additional resources as Trevor is 69 currently. We need to get someone into the role on a part time basis. Membership We now have Pippa Hutchison on board for 3 or 4 days a week in Dacorum. We are bolstering her with part time support. This person will come on board in the next couple of weeks to help achieve more membership. Eddie Veale is happy to go out and see members who have resigned. Lisa Hall asked about resources in the office to support this. We have someone from Milton Keynes Chamber of Commerce coming on board. These new people are all coming in on short term contracts. YR is speaking with Broxbourne Borough Council to see if they wish to work with us. We are launching our ambassador programme. We will be getting these people together to help drive membership. EV suggested looking at Cambridge Cleantech. YR has put in an application to Growth Accelerator programme for leadership training for herself and some of the key members of staff. In terms of our own training programme, we are looking at launching some training programmes in September. Ashridge have asked to put events on at a reduced rate for us. We are looking at targeting North Herts and particularly Hitchin YR met with Sally Taylor to see if we can look other funding pots. YR is looking at a draft budget. We are looking at how we can outsource our newsletter. We are looking at other areas i.e. marketing collateral products with Hertford Regional College. YR is also looking at expenditure and direct costs. Neville Reyner commented that the budget should be tied with our KPIs. London Stansted corridor forum - YR asked if any B oard member might like to get involved with this. Edddie Veale asked YR to do a monthly email on where we want support. Action: YR to produce a monthly email for Board We have had one to ones, team meetings, try to get members of the team to go out with other members of the team. Contracts of employment have all gone out to everyone and job descriptions have all been done. Jill is looking at reducing her hours. Membership Retention

Yr has spoken with Ocado in Bessemer Road in Welwyn Garden City and hope to have our engineering forum there. Membership Growth £20k revenue from new members year to date. We have a new Member Engagement Officer in Dacorum. She has a target to bring in 100 new businesses a year. YR congratulated Andy Cook for his Queens Award Export We had a meeting with UKTI where we can optimise synergy. EV would like to sit in on this. FH went to the BCC Trade Fair recently. Education Team They have been setting up some good events on developing goals to achieve growth Inspiring Herts - We would have made a good profit of £20k but because Exemplas pulled out this took us back to £13k. JC has already sent thank you letter out to the sponsors asking if would like to sponsor again for 2014. PB suggested we draw up contracts for next year to avoid the same thing happening Action: JC to draw up contracts for all 2014 sponsors A business dinner is set for 12th June to meet with all the other town chambers. YR will report back at the next meeting on this. Yr attended BIS confence in London recently. She has also been asked to sit on the BCC Commercial Steering Group. YR has done a number of radio interviews. She asked the Board if anyone was interested in helping with these when she was not available. Lisa hall is press trained. Our website is at least 8 years old. We are looking at how we can capitalise on BCC branding campaign #getconnected and #bewellconnected. We don’t have a sales brochure at the moment. We would like to do this. We also need a new website. YR gave a presentation on the branding campaign. The Board agreed to this. YR will check all the colours. We will send out colours to the Board and get feedback from them and also ask a couple of members

HCCI Activity report April- June 2013 Business activity Overview Each area of the business has been reviewed against the budget which was set at 9 months of the last financial year. It was decided to review YTD performance , business on the books, and outline an amber and red forecast, with the amber being more realistic in most cases giving an overall 5% growth; and the aspiration forecast in highlighted in red showing a 10% growth. This is for further discussion with the Board. We have in the last week, had a team meeting, and there is a high degree of optimism and membership has really started to pick up. Our members are feeling positive about their own business growth, and for the County to achieve growth but less positive towards the UK economy. Export –confidence in the service sector for export is strong, although manufacturing confidence is now starting to grow again, and businesses claim they are busier than they have been for a long time, and still operating very lean structures. The chamber recognises the need to raise the bar with our marketing to drive growth.

V) Other revenue A bid was sent to the LEP to support funding to create a Manufacturing and Engineering Forum in the county to support raising awareness of the vital skills shortages and supporting export and International trade opportunities. This would be funding a post and creating a highly visible network of experts in this field to tackle key issues affecting growth of this important sector and convergence across automotive, healthcare, tourism, med- technology etc. Within the first year the following outputs would be expected:      

50 referrals to service providers such as MAS, Growth Accelerator and UKTI. 10 new supply chain relationships established among members. Exports of manufactured and engineered goods from Hertfordshire grow at a 10% compound rate. There is a 10% growth in the GVA of forum member businesses. 100 new Manufacturing and Engineering Apprenticeships 250 Manufacturing and Engineering work placements.


10 new KTP exchanges between Hertfordshire students and Hertfordshire Engineering and Manufacturing businesses.

Ongoing It is planned that the Forum eventually becomes self sustaining, requiring only a light touch in terms of facilitation and administrative support from HCCI. Funding Required Yr 1: £75,000 Yr 2: £25,000 Yr 3: £10,000 Yr 4: £10,000 Through our Environmental Forum we are also submitting a bid to support funding a Smart County Project to drive sustainability and low carbon initiatives in Herts., building on the research project from Cranfield Business School, and in collaboration with other partners. The areas of the business being reviewed to exploit opportunities to grow Chamber brands, i.e. Chamber HR, Environmental Population, , Go Global and CSR accreditation, with the aim of attracting and sustaining membership and additional forum revenue from these services. Sally Taylor has joined the chamber team on a freelance, part time basis to support with the rebranding and creating more enhanced marketing. Sally has a network of her own, through her business ‘Environmental Population’ which offers green networking, green website etc. She will also take over our environmental forum, and grow the green solutions opportunities for Herts. businesses with supply chains, and networking. She will also manage recruitment of new members with a strong link to CSR and environmental policy and is creating a plan to convert many of her existing Hertfordshire based members (100 in Herts. ) to HCCI membership. Also developing a strategy and plan to help all team members sell member benefits that earn revenue. I am also having talks around funding to support the Tourism strategy with the HCCI and HHA (Hertfordshire Hoteliers Association) for the County, and will update the Board on developments. In September we will be developing training tools and hold a training day to help team members sell revenue generating benefits, and cross sell. 6) ‘Make it easy to do business with us ‘ Rebranding underway, business cards, and marketing plan being drawn up, to systematically manage the process efficiently and effectively. Sally is busy creating fliers, conference brochures, before reviewing the website redesign and will support external communications with copywriting. Danny Jack from BCC visited the team to help clarify brand compliance. We will be looking to leverage as much publicity as possible from this rebrand. From October HCCI will outsource newsletter to Benham publishing, referral from Surrey chambers, which will save over £12,500 per annum on distribution costs, and save time. Benham have contracts for several other chambers, and it works very well. We have given notice to Crosby we wish to cancel diary agreement, understand we are contracted for one last year. A marketing plan will be outlined during the strategy day.


Herts Chamber of Commerce and Industry Report on management accounts Period ended 30th June 2013 Profit and loss account 

Overall income in the period was £201,588 compared to £179,606 for the first quarter last year, an increase of £21,982 or 12.2%.

The composition of sales has remained broadly similar – but the increase is mainly due to an increase in membership fees – up £12,845 (26.7%) on the same period last year. Export income continues to be a strength – and has also increased in the period (up 7.2%)

Turnover for the quarter is ahead of the budget by £25,319 (14.4%). This may be a little high – given the profile of events income as the budget for the year has been pro rata for these management accounts. If we take the budget for the year for events of £93,500 – take out the Inspiring Hertfordshire Awards – amounting to £29,900 and take 3/12 of the remaining budget, expected budgeted income would be £45,800. This would make the total budgeted income £199,569 – and therefore we are £2,019 (0.1%) ahead of a more profiled budget.

The combination of events income, export services and membership subscriptions accounts for 84.3% of total income for the first quarter – compared to 81.2% last year. This demonstrates that the Chamber is continuing to build on its traditional service offering to members.

Gross profit margin achieved is 54.5% compared to 41.2% last year – and is also ahead of budget (51.8%). The central costs apportionment has been removed from the management accounts and consideration will be given to a correct allocation of staff to direct costs for the next set of management accounts. We may then establish a more accurate value for the contribution generated by each activity towards the core overheads of the Chamber.

Staff costs are down by 12.4% compared to the same period last year – but slightly over budget by 3.4%. The overall staff costs include £3,880 of recruitment fees in June which has pushed the overall costs slightly over budget. Core staff costs are therefore 3.3% below budget after removing the recruitment fees. This shows that the staffing restructure that took place last year is now showing a positive effect on the trading result.

Establishment expenses remain constant and include rent, service charges and insurance. These costs are broadly in line with budget.

Travel and entertaining expenses are in line with 2013 and below the budget.

Included in general office costs are website expenses. These are just under £2,000 up on the same period last year. Commission and agents fees have been shown separately this year –


but were included within the total for marketing in the budgets. The main overspend against budget is in the combination of website and all forms of marketing - £2,147 overspend. 

Costs need to be tightly controlled and this highlights that there may be scope to work on reducing future spend to bring back into line with the overall budget.

Operating profit before exceptional items for the year was £13,507 compared to a loss of £30,848 last year – and up on budget by £12,105.

The overall profit for the year to date is £14,356 – which includes bank deposit interest earned in the quarter of £849.

Based on the losses sustained in the previous year, there will be no corporation tax charge based on the results to date.

Considerations for the future – costs for the staff need to be matched against project income. Presently there is no recognition of work in progress. We need to establish ongoing projects and the rights to recognise income in the management accounts – or create work in progress based on time and costs incurred with projects.

Balance sheet  Fixed assets include shares in Exemplas. In addition during last year, shares were acquired in Foundation East. Fixtures and fittings include computer equipment – modest additions in the period of just under £1,600.  Overall debtors at the end of June 2013 were £134,649 compared to £174,784 at the end of March 2013, a reduction of £40,135.  Trade debtors at the end of 2012 were £122,879 net of provisions compared to £157,042 this year - a reduction of £34,163.  Trade debtors days are 58 days compared to 83 days for 2013.  Bank and cash amounts to £325,555 at the end of June compared to £316,049 (increase of £9,506). The increase arises following the trading performance in the 3 months. The movements in debtors and creditors broadly offset each other and thus the movement in cash arises from the positive trading result in the period.  Overall creditors have declined – falling from £130,745 at the end of March 2013 to £99,255. The main shifty is the movement of deferred income – given the Inspiring Hertfordshire event took place in May – monies collected at year end were £37,900.


 Included within accruals is £11,455 relating to telephones. This relates to the deal with the University – but has not been billed since the accrual was created in 2010/11. This needs some consideration regarding likelihood of expenditure.  Net assets amount to £363,057 compared to £361,395 at the end of March 2013 – an increase of £1,662.
