Chambers of Commerce: Old Boys Club or New World Order?

November, 2022

  • Much like Trade Unions, they were set up to represent/protect the interest of their members i.e. businesses 
  • What high-impact goals have they achieved – on behalf of their wider membership? 
  • What is the real motivation of holding office?  Legacy, Glamour and/or making a real difference to the membership, especially to those who may not have a voice?
  • Has the excitement of showcasing grand events and audiences with politicians, taken the focus away from their core purpose? 
  • The answers should come from their own conscience!
