Dear Members and Friends

Happy new year! I hope you’ve all had a chance to recharge your batteries over the festive period. I had a great holiday in Tasmania and thoroughly recommend it.

2017 will be another action-packed year for your Chamber. All the more so, because in 2017 we celebrate 180 years of service by the Chamber and its members to the business community and to Singapore.

All our now well-established and very popular event series will continue such as the member-exclusive Distinguished Speaker, Innovation and Women in Leadership Series. You can look forward to more top-notch speakers sharing their insights and giving us all something relevant to think about and to action in our businesses.

The networking events and member-exclusive C-suite networking events are all planned. These will provide you with effective platforms to extend your personal and business networks. Vital at any time but especially now.

As part of our 180th anniversary celebrations we’ll be bringing you exciting new event series. I’ll be sharing the details with you very soon. Please visit the events calendar on our website regularly to stay updated.

All the January and February events are now open for registration except for our Post-Budget event which we are now finalising. Read the next section below for more details. Here’s to another year of participating and seizing all those opportunities!

With warmest regards from me and my team.

Victor Mills
Chief Executive
