It is both an honor and a privilege to have been selected as your NEACCE President. NEACCE is a dynamic organization that is dedicated to the education and advancement of Chamber professionals from throughout New England. Networking, sharing best practices, exchanging economic development strategies, brainstorming membership ideas, and developing valuable member programs that boost your retention rate are all part of the NEACCE experience.

The NEACCE Membership Directory serves as the official “who’s-who” in chamber of commerce leadership. This is a great resource to help you effectively tap into the wealth of knowledge that is found within the ranks of our organization. Our website also has comprehensive information about the organization and the latest updates on professional development opportunities, upcoming events, job openings, and more.

Annually, the best and the brightest chamber leaders gather for the NEACCE conference. This is a valuable opportunity for us to gather together to share best practices and learn new tactics to improve our chambers and help our members in the business community grow and prosper in the years to come. The information shared and the friendships forged at this event can be some of the most valuable experiences of your professional career—a real working session with proven ideas and lots of tangible tactics to help your chamber thrive in the months and years to come.

Your suggestions for improving the services that NEACCE provides to you and our other members are always welcome. Please feel free to contact me or any member of the Board of Directors with any ideas that you may have.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, I thank you for your support and commitment to NEACCE and the chamber profession. Together, we can continue to help nurture strong Chamber leaders and an even stronger business community throughout New England.
