For 99 years the Chamber has been helping businesses grow their network, knowledge, influence and reach. The Chamber has a large and active membership from sole traders to multinational companies across all sectors totalling more than 6,300 employees.

David Boyd said: “As a local businessman, operating in a competitive environment, I understand the problems faced by local businesses on a daily basis. I believe it is vital that we support each other locally. As a Chamber, we need to stand together to represent and support all businesses within this region. I would encourage all local businesses to get involved and support the organised events and activities, knowing that they are designed to facilitate networking and give you the platform to promote your business.”

Membership of the Chamber Council, the body that governs the Chamber, was increased with the election of Charlene Shongo of City of Derry Airport and Andy Kilpatrick of NorthXSouth.
