May 2023 – the AGM


There was no guest speaker this month as it was the AGM – but there was the usual delicious Mix breakfast of course.


Voting and the chairman’s vision for the coming year

Chairman Colin Tapscott, secretary Keely Taylor and new treasurer Jason Ford were all elected at the AGM.

Colin then used the opportunity to outline the progress in the Chamber’s three core principles, the three Cs: Champion, Connect and Communicate.
These have been facilitated by setting up the Chamber Catalyst and Chamber Chat to help members communicate online.

This year, he said, we had also been able to hold our first in-person business exhibition post Covid, which had been well attended and a great success. Aims for the coming year will be to continue exploring and expanding our network as well as attracting more members. We are also investigating other, bigger venues for an in-person business exhibition next year.

He also paid tribute to two members who had been staunch Chamber supporters. One, Tracey Gaught, has sadly died and the other, former chairman Allan Scott, is sadly quite poorly after having been diagnosed with terminal bowel cancer.
