It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that I have agreed to take on the position of CEO of the Chamber of Commerce for Greater Moncton. I believe sincerely in the need for the Chamber as well as its role among our business community.
Our mission at the Chamber is to inspire growth with a focus on promoting the success of our members and the well-being of the business community as a whole. The fact that we are independent makes us THE voice of the business community.
First and foremost, however, the Chamber of Commerce for Greater Moncton is each of you. It is you who create a vibrant business community, who are constantly innovating to find new approaches and who are helping our region to thrive as it has been.
It is also you who motivate us to keep evolving and remaining proactive when it comes to offering what you expect from your Chamber.
Your individual realities and requirements are at times very different from one another. For this reason, we strive for diversity in our services, activities and themes. That said, you have much in common as well, including the need to grow, stay informed, get support and be connected. The Chamber is consequently here for each of you individually but also for all of you as a community, for example, by taking a public stance on issues that impact the overall business community.
Over the coming year, the Board of Directors will continue to implement the strategies set out in our 2017-2020 plan while also ensuring that these strategies remain appropriate and relevant.
Work is well underway in this regard, with three committees formed over the past year.
The Advocacy Committee intends to continue expanding the Chamber’s role in member representation and moving forward on issues of public interest that affect you.
The Membership Committee will seek to optimize our corporate image, fulfil our mission and improve our communications both with you and with other stakeholders.
Finally, the Events Committee will endeavour to offer you high-quality events that meet your needs.
Please don’t hesitate to share your comments, suggestions or ideas with us. The Chamber is here for you.
Chair, Board of Directors
