Hello! An exciting year ahead…
Well, I am very excited indeed to have been elected your new president!
After being on the committee for a year, it is truly an honour for me to be part of leading and developing Bishop’s Stortford Chamber of Commerce. When I came along for the first time to a breakfast meeting back in June 2016 – I remember noticing what a sense of community spirit there was at the event. I want to build on this precious commodity and develop our chamber to be a powerful voice for our members.
I am very much looking forward to the year ahead, working with Nick our chairman and the wider committee. We have come a long way in the last year, building our team spirit and getting focused on key priorities that will bring about increased growth both for us and our members. My focus will be on increasing our visibility and building key strategic partnerships.
As you know from Nick, we have many plans afoot! We are developing a marketing strategy and evaluating how we can enhance our service to you, our members. We want to ensure we are doing all we can to deliver the best local representation, partnership and network opportunities. With lots of developments happening in and around the town, we have much to engage in to ensure our voice is heard.
I very much look forward to seeing you at our next event. Please do share your experience of our chamber with colleagues and contacts – and send anyone our way who you think may benefit in being a valued member.
As always we’d love to hear your feedback, so please do get in touch with me (firstname.lastname@example.org or 07817 246930) or any member of the committee to let us know any feedback, comments or ideas!
Nicci Statham – President
