“This comes on the heels of our publication of our HR Manual and continues our efforts to make our documents available to help local chambers and others that may be interested,” explained Graham Starmer, President of the Manitoba Chambers of commerce. 

The manual covers a wide range of topics from the duties of each member of the executive to general board duties such as the duties of knowledge, care and diligence; the committees of the MCC; and the CEO’s role and duties.
