Business Membership

If you have a business (within the Dales or further afield) and an affinity with our special area, then you can help protect these unique landscapes and communities by becoming a Business Member of the Yorkshire Dales Society. 

Your donation will help support the work of the Yorkshire Dales Society, to advance the public knowledge and appreciation of the social history and the physical and cultural heritage of the Yorkshire Dales and to preserve its condition, landscape and natural beauty.

By joining the Society as a Business Member, you must support our charitable objects (contained in our Memorandum of Association). Our key object is:

“To advance the public knowledge and appreciation of the social history and the physical and cultural heritage of the Yorkshire Dales, whilst preserving its condition, landscape and natural beauty”.

 We also hope you will share our concern to support economic activity in the Yorkshire Dales by encouraging sustainable development in all its forms, especially farming, tourism, and small businesses within the Dales, providing such activity does not compromise the special landscape quality and natural beauty of the Dales.

We are improving the administration of Business Membership to enable us to offer an invoice/receipt service with BACS or DD payment.
