ActivityThe Aberdeen and North of Scotland Trade Protection Society was founded in 1855, after two years of meetings and discussions amongst the merchants and traders of the area. In 1872 it developed into Aberdeen Chamber of Commerce, with 148 members. It deals with all matters relating to trade in the city and surrounding area, including employment, unemployment and labour shortages, educational liaison, industrial and trade trends, relations with chambers of commerce in other towns, and certificates of origin. It also represents local trades in matters relating to local transport problems. By 1933 it had 363 members, including many of the most influential businessmen in the North East. Now with premises in George Street, Aberdeen, and with a Junior Chamber, it also publishes an influential annual journal, with comprehensive reports and surveys.
