The Grand Bahama Chamber of Commerce held its annual general meeting and election of officers on Wednesday. Current president James Carey was re-elected to the post.

At the meeting, Carey recapped the successes of the Chamber over the past year. “As President there is no transition period, I’m just continuing and therefore, immediately after election my new board and I delved into what course of action we envisaged for the year 2022-23. We invested time in meetings to re-evaluate the relevance of the chamber as we understood it to be and devise a strategy to articulate our position moving forward to be inclusive of the entire business community. We committed to work closely with government and its agencies, the Grand Bahama Port Authority and all those who share in the vision for the advancement of business, the improvement of the economy and thereby our community.”

Mr. Carey also laid out the goals of the Chamber for this year. Along with Carey, Ralph Hepburn was elected First Vice President, Glennett Fowler as Second Vice President, Carmel Parker-Dean as Treasurer and Patra Albury as Secretary.
