Minutes of AGM 2012

The minutes from the AGM 2012 were distributed and approved.


Chairs Report

The Chamber has completed its plans to refurbish the website; however, this will still need constant updating. It was noted that the website in future should include more questions and forums.



It was noted that the Breakfast Meetings are not attracting so many numbers as previous years. It was pointed out that this may be due to the Networking field already being saturated.

Brenda Baker has been Chair for 4 years and felt that it was time for a change for chair.

It was also noted that future discussions must be had regarding the future of Chamber and what it does.


Treasurers Report





Brenda Baker thanked Peter for his hard work over the year.
