A NOTE FROM THE PRESIDENT
Last year, as the Chamber became the natural, go-to place for businesses needing to make sense of government announcements and understand what support was available, I was incredibly proud of the team who worked tirelessly on behalf of our members.
This year, as our most ambitious campaign in our long history, Black Country 2.0 unfurls, I find myself equally proud of its achievements and the team behind it.
As well as being on hand to help members raise their profile, share best practices and access money-saving opportunities; the power of the Chamber lies in its ability to be a local advocate and voice of the business community.
Emerging in the decades following their role as the powerhouse of the Industrial Revolution, local businesses came together to create the Black Country’s first Chambers of Commerce and, two centuries later, the Chamber is still the leading voice for local businesses and is keeping up the pressure on policymakers and decisionmakers as we emerge from a turbulent period for all in the region’s business community.
