Enabling groups are non-membership based business groups, providing networking opportunities. Applications are considered from  volunteer and business entities, who enable networking through their main operations, and whose aims and objectives align with those of the ASB.

Benefits of working together with the ASB for the interests of your networking group

  • Your group profile listed on our website as well as all the benefits of being an ASB member
  • Reciprocal sharing of events seeking more, wider and varied networking opportunities
  • Support from ASB committee on related matters;
  • A voice at Scottish government meetings;
  • Discounted membership of the ASB for your network

If a group, wishing to join the ASB, is in a geographical area already serviced by an ASB affiliated group, then the affiliated group shall first be consulted in accordance with the ASB constitution..


An enabling group may join the ASB at no cost. In return, we ask that the enabling group organisers encourage their network to engage with the ASB and support our membership aims.
