It is a great honor to lead the Egyptian American Chamber of Commerce or EACHAM. As we set course for a bright future, the EACHAM will focus on networking, connectivity, the millennial generation, empowering small business and broadening member participation. In addition, I created a new committee or advisory board led by David Wild, with the goal of helping members who wants to establish new business or needs some direction for more success.
The power of an active chamber is to have strong unified committees and good size of membership so it can advocate for the rights of its members and their business.
By investing in your Chamber of Commerce, you are investing in your own business, you are giving more potential from grow and success. Not only, your own business but giving opportunity for new Egyptian immigrants to have either the possibility to create their own business or to have a job in your established successful business. You are participating in a better citizen, a better economy in both Egypt and USA, you are investing in a better world.
The Egyptian American Chamber programs are in full swing. We are offering every 3 months Women in Business Breakfast, monthly workshops, monthly Networking Youth Business owners, Face to Face and Email mentoring.
The EACHAM is on the process to create it is first CEO & President monthly lunch and it will be leaded by mentors to help in creating more business opportunities for our members and solve some of the business issues they may be facing.
The recipe for success in a volunteer organization is participation, passion and value proposition. Will you participate by attending an event or joining a committee? Passionate members succeed because they are willing to roll up their sleeves and contribute their time and talents, thereby multiplying them. Finally, when you define your values and understand how they intersect with the Egyptian American Chamber ideals of business and leadership growth you’ll find this organization to be of great worth.
Finally, I appreciate the many engaged and active volunteers and members who serve our member businesses.
