In an historic livery company, with an enviable background in the Transport and Logistics sector, Carmen reflect today’s transport industry, the lifeblood of our economy. Members raise money for the deserving and disadvantaged, primarily in education and wellbeing. We offer support, encouragement and empathy to those who serve in the armed services; we innovate in the world of transport through debate, discussion and design; and we actively support and contribute to the City civic.
We are part of a City-wide fellowship of historic and modern guilds reflecting trades, crafts, industries and professions. Over the millennia, those guilds have moved to meet the needs of the times. The Carmen are no exception.
We offer three types of membership:
We continue to adapt and evolve to meet the challenges of today’s industry and our Corporate Membership scheme plays a part in this. This scheme is available to companies with the ability and vision to support our educational and charitable work. It offers advice, support, networking opportunities and unique experiences.
Our members network with professionals in the transport and logistics sector, supporting others, developing knowledge and skills. Members support our charitable and educational programmes; elect the Lord Mayor of London; attend many events including dinners in unique places; and join social activities such as golf and our car club.
Service personnel may choose to join the Carmen to gain a similar range of benefits as with personal membership. However, our range of fees recognises the commitment and loyalty of our service personnel to the Crown.
The Company’s renowned welcome and fellowship extends equally to all, regardless of nationality, ethnicity, gender, religious beliefs or other factors.
Liverymen and Freemen of the Company experience lifelong fellowship, they are generous in charitable giving, and participate enthusiastically in the life of the Livery. They welcome the opportunity to serve the City of London Corporation and the wider community and enjoy the privilege of association with those who serve King and country.
Alternatively, contact the Clerk to discuss your route to membership.
