Continuing its programme of intense engagement with members on issues of importance, the Saint Lucia Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture will be hosting its first Quarterly General Meeting for 2019 on April 4th 2019 at the Finance Administrative Center, Pointe Seraphine. The meeting scheduled to commence at 5:00 p.m. with a packed agenda.
The Chamber has secured the attendance of the Department of Sustainable Development to make a presentation on “Greening Our Environment; The Ban on Plastics”. The Department will present full details on the phasing out of Styrofoam containers and single-use plastics. Many Chamber members have already commenced “Going Green” initiatives and policy decision has generally been welcomed and anticipated by members of the Chamber.
Another important agenda Item is a presentation on the topic “Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing; Implications for and the Role of Chamber Members” by the Attorney General’s Chambers.
As part of its efforts to provide useful and practical skills and information to members, a “Tech Tips” segment has been introduced to the Quarterly General Meeting where “efficiently and effectively using your mobile devices and handsets to increase productivity” will be the area of focus.
The General Meeting will, however, commence with the presentation of the Chamber’s 2019-2022 Strategic Plan, which seeks to continue the strategic transformation process which the Chamber embarked upon some two years ago. Members will be invited to endorse the strategic plan and join the Board, Secretariat and the various committees of the Chamber to make the transformation process a success for all Chamber of Commerce Stakeholders.
This Quarterly General Meeting is being sponsored by Digicel who will present the first set of tech tips to Chamber Members. Other Chamber members have already agreed to participate in this skills and knowledge transfer at other upcoming events of the Chamber.
The Chamber is expecting all members to register for this important meeting.
