One very powerful element of being a JCI UK member is the connection we have with the local British Chamber of Commerce across the UK.
Today I met with Adam Marshall, Director General of the British Chamber of Commerce at their HQ in London to discuss how JCI UK & the British Chamber of Commerce can work closer together on a local and national level.

The business community and having business links is very important to the development of our members which in turn helps for us to reach our full potential. I was very proud to discuss how JCI UK member are making impact around the UK with chambers such as JCI Bradford, JCI Doncaster & JCI Southampton have very close links with their chamber of commerce. We have JCI UK members employed within a Chamber of Commerce and recently a former Local President of JCI Portsmouth & JCI UK Senator, Maureen Frost, became CEO of Hampshire Chamber of Commerce.
I am very excited of how this strategic partnership can work for the benefit of both our organisations. Over the coming weeks & months, we will be releasing further details along with success stories & upcoming events of joint partnership working.
