For me it’s all about providing and increasing the value proposition.
It was an honour to have recently been selected following a lengthy and extensive process as the new President and CEO of the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce following the retirement of Graham Starmer.
For the past 82 years, the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce has served as the umbrella organization for Manitoba’s chamber movement. With a membership comprised of Local Chambers of Commerce as well direct Corporate Members, the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce is Manitoba’s largest and most diverse business lobby, representing over 10,000 businesses and community leaders.
My goal is to ensure that every one of the 63 local Chambers situated around the province and all of our corporate members receive value for their Chamber membership.
Our mission is similar to that of many organizations in Manitoba, namely, to foster a dynamic economy and vibrant communities, making Manitoba the best place in which to live, work, invest and raise a family. What sets us apart is our Vision, which describes the Manitoba we are working to achieve.
My focus will be on increasing the profile of the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce through not only the strong policy work that we do, but also by supporting the great work being done by local Chambers. A big part of creating that value proposition revolves around listening to what’s important to our members.
