Putting our weight behind member priorities
The Board’s greatest strength is our ability to convene the right players around issues that matter to business.
When we bring bright minds together, new initiatives are often created. These unique projects help to achieve our members’ goals and benefit businesses across the Region by pushing for bold solutions to big problems.
