Clare Gift Card Scheme is designed to support businesses in Co Clare and the local economy. Every €10 spent in Co Clare generates €24 of benefit to the local economy.
Networking, business referrals, promotion, lobbying, training and professional development are core reasons why businesses join Ennis Chamber.
I take on the role of President, Ennis Chamber of Commerce, at an unprecedented time, not just for Ennis or Ireland, but globally.
These are strange days indeed, with many businesses within our membership not allowed to trade and many of those that are trading facing pressure of a different sort in ensuring the continued health and safety of their staff.
For businesses, like my own, playing a waiting game, we must use this time to plan for recovery and as a Chamber we must support everyone within our membership as they plan for recovery. It is critical that the town of Ennis recovers its vibrancy.
Failure is not an option. We have to fight our way back from this situation because so many livelihoods and futures rest on the shoulders of our business community.
I have taken ‘community’ as the theme for my presidency. We need to come together, to support one another, to help business owners navigate their way through these difficult days and the undoubted challenges that lie ahead.
It won’t be easy, but together we will do it.
