Junior Chamber celebrate a decade

The Junior Chamber celebrated its 10th year in existence at its AGM in the Whistledown hotel Warrenpoint recently. Deborah King from Stakeholder Communications was present to officiate the election of the new officers with Brendan Malone being elected president. The outgoing president Siobhan Nugent thanked members for their support during the year which was a positive year for the organisation despite troubles affecting business life both fore members and in the community as a whole. The new committee was duly appointed with Martina Murtagh  and Paul Duffy elected vice-presidents, Louise Campbell (secretary), Patrick Magee (treasurer) and Darren Turtle (training and social director). Newry Junior Chamber is a vibrant and engaging organisation committed to developing young business people of the greater Newry area and holds one monthly meeting which rotates between Newry and Warrenpoint. In addition to benefits such as ongoing training, charitable and community activities, teambuilding events and regular social interaction, being part of a vibrant organisation adds to the skills of individuals making them better place to serve the businesses they represent. The informal and friendly culture of the group together with the diversity of its members helps create a culture of cooperation enabling members to interact easily. By sharing ones business experiences amongst peers individuals gain new ideas and thinking that can bring value to their businesses and themselves. The relationships we build are sustainable and long term. New members are always welcome and the next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday February 7 at 7.30pm in the Bank Bar Newry  and anyone wishing to join should attend.
