Southland Chamber of Commerce CEO Sheree Carey was elected as a director on the New Zealand Chambers of Commerce (NZCCI) Board at the AGM held on Thursday 17th October.

Nominated by Otago Chamber of Commerce CEO Dougal McGowan, Carey will take up the role of ninth member on the board after receiving the majority of votes from the 32 Chambers throughout New Zealand.

The NZCCI Board has nine directors made up of the CEOs of the Auckland, Wellington, Canterbury and Otago Chambers, and another director from each region. The Ninth Member is elected by the representatives of all the accredited Chambers at the NZCCI AGM.

Carey, who was also named a finalist in the NZ Women of Influence Awards last year said she was privileged to be elected and was looking forward to becoming the voice of the regions around the table.

“Supporting the smaller regional chambers and their members to ensure they have a strong voice at a national level is something I am passionate about, this role is the conjugate between the big boys and the little guys, and given my reputation for being pragmatic and not shy in voicing my opinion, I look forward to the new challenge” Carey said.

The long-standing successful business network represents over 24,000 businesses. Their role is to influence and inspire business and deliver success. As not-for-profit business membership associations, the New Zealand Chambers promote, support and encourage sustainable, profitable business growth.
