"We have passed the tipping point and a cultural change is needed", Dan Fougere, President of the Antigonish Chamber of Commerce
2016 The Year in Review :
This time last year, our new Executive Director Richard Burelle and I were stepping onto new roles with the Chamber. The learning curve has been steep but with the helpful guidance from a diversified and experienced Board of Directors, we have completed a successful year of operations at the Antigonish Chamber of Commerce.
This report is intended to summarize our Chamber activities since my election as President at our AGM one year ago.
The activities of the Antigonish Chamber of Commerce in 2013 and so far this year have been driven, largely, by the Membership Survey that was distributed to our Chamber members this past May. This survey provided us with our members’ priorities, and as a result, a focus for our board.
The survey told us that municipal relations was their number one priority, with wayfinding also being a major concern.
