The Company’s mission is to be recognised as the most effective independent forum in the UK Communications and Content industries, actively contributing to the strategic development, success and education of these industries.
We do this by:
encouraging a broad balance of membership (both by individuals and by companies) from all sectors of our industries, covering most of the senior executives and businesses in our industries;
delivering high-quality events at Stationers’ Hall, on subjects that are up-to-date, forward-looking and strategic, that provide excellent networking opportunities and good value for money and are fun;
maximising the resources of our charity, the Stationers’ Foundation, and directing them towards improving literacy, the education of young people seeking careers in our industries and the welfare of those connected with our industries;
developing our facilities at Stationers’ Hall to enhance the benefits of membership, better preserve and provide wider access to our treasures and archives, and increase commercial lettings;
playing an active part in the work of the Corporation of London by encouraging and supporting our members to contribute to the Corporation’s work, by participating in new initiatives and by building our relationships with other livery companies, particularly those with trades related to ours;
adding value to membership through improved communications, improved membership facilities at Stationers’ Hall and the organisation of events;
creating full transparency in our governance procedures so that all members are able to maximise their contribution to the work of the Company and develop their standing within the Company;
increasing our impact in the industry through improved public relations and stronger relationships with our media partners;
encouraging the use of Stationers’ Hall by our partner Trade Associations and other communications-related membership organisations;
preserving our library and archives, which record our role as custodians of copyright from its very beginnings, and making this unique collection accessible to a broader public audience.
