Dear Members and Friends

One of the recurring challenges for anyone running a successful business association is how do you encourage more members to provide regular input about what they need from their Chamber? Well, visiting them helps as does acting on feedback from members who attend the many Chamber events and interest group meetings. Are there other ways?

We’ve found focus groups can be useful and this year we plan to run a series of these. The Chairman and I will not attend these feedback sessions and, instead, they will be facilitated by an independent third party. This will provide the safest possible platform for members to express their comments and views which will be shared with the Chairman and me in aggregate only. Some of you will be invited to attend a focus group meeting this year and I hope that you’ll do so and provide your insights into how my team and I can serve you better.

We’ll also be running an online survey to reach more people including the many friends who read this e-newsletter every week.

As we finalize our tactics to gain a deeper understanding of what you need from your Chamber, I’d welcome any other tactical ideas you may have. [email protected]

With my thanks and very best regards
Victor Mills
Chief Executive
