Alison Jambert, elected as Chairperson of the Executive Committee and President of the BCCJ says, “I feel very privileged to have been given this opportunity to help steer the Chamber through the next stage of its development. Working together and with your support I am confident we will maintain what has worked and strengthen the Chamber even further. You will be seeing a lot more of me over the coming year, especially at BCCJ events, so please come and say hello. You can also follow me on Twitter @BCCJ_President for the latest updates or just simply to connect. I am looking forward to serving the Chamber and its members”.

Please join us in congratulating the winners and thanking all the candidates for their participation in this landmark election for the BCCJ.
