It is at this time of the year that we pull back a little on event's here at the chamber. We call it our Summer break - but rest assured that we are not pulling out the flip flops to kick back and relax here at Chamber HQ.
We use this summer break to read, learn and explore...
For a start; we will finally get a chance to read our latest CONNECTED magazine and appreciate all of the hard work that goes into it. We will follow up on some of those stories, and we will be reading up on, and finding out the latest business news in the region and passing it on to our members. This means we will still be accepting you Good News stories and we will be sending our Connected Business News e-zines over the summer months to keep you all updated - so watch those inboxes.
Some of the team will take this time to train and upskill - Grainne is working on some CIM Certifications and is also completing the Export Documentation course and Carol is also doing further Export Documentation training. Laverne will be scoping other events and learning from other organisations how we can make our events better for our members. On that note - have a look at some of our events to look forward to in the second half of 2017.
24th August: EURES Employer Incentives Lunch
13th October: 60th Annual Presidents Dinner
15th December: Chamber Xmas Drinks
15th January: 2018 North West Business Awards Launch

You may also see that we will be posting surveys online and to your inbox - please take the time to complete at least one survey and have your say. We work for our members, so your feedback is important to us and will help us improve the services that we are offering.
New Ideas and Opportunities are at the forefront of our minds at this time of the year. Some of our members may see Sinead out and about, meeting new people and talking to new and existing members about opportunities that exist for the chamber and its members. If you would like to speak to any of the team about any opportunities the chamber can extend to your business please feel free to get in touch for a chat.
Enjoy your holidays and Don't forget if you go somewhere sunny - Wear Sunscreen!
