Our new President's first blog
27th February, 2013
Well here I am now confirmed as your president of the next 12 months with the chain of office weighing me down as is the enormity of the task ahead of me.
However, I am looking forward to the challenge.
The Chamber has played an important role in the business of life of Penrith for many many years but now, I believe, it needs to change and become an all embracing organisation which represents all businesses.
We have some amazing businesses in and around the town who haven’t, for one reason or another, been involved in the Chamber and now is the time to seek their support so we can be truly representative of the whole business community.
Over the next weeks and months I will be seeking the views of these businesses to see how we can help them and how they can help us over the years to come.
With regard to the town itself there are lots of exciting things happening in 2013 which will hopefully transform it into a vibrant and ‘must visit’ town.
More details of these will follow in due course but I look forward to the next 12 months and hopefully I can count on the support of Penrith business to make a real difference not only to the Chamber but to the town itself.
In the meantime, if you wish to make your views known on any business related matter, please do so by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org
