Last call to Chamber members to shape agenda

| 10/09/2014

(CNS): The president of the Chamber of Commerce is urging its members to take an online survey as soon as possible to help direct the organisation's advocacy agenda. Johann Moxam said it was the last chance for the members to make their views on the top issues of the day known so that the Chamber Council can serve the membership and press government to act in the areas that concern them the most. Asking people to be direct about what’s important, the survey is also designed to solicit what members think about the government's first 16 months in office. Moxam said the survey should take less than five minutes to complete and a little more for those wishing to comment on questions.

“This is your last chance to get involved in shaping the Chamber's public advocacy agenda. Your response will be treated confidentially so we encourage you to be frank with your responses,” he said, adding that the survey results will shape the direction of the Council's public advocacy agenda on national issues.

    This is a very good idea and Mr. Moxam is doing a fine job. I wonder what they will do with their policy agenda when they find everybody disapproves of everything the government has done.

      Say wha. I thought MLA's were elected to help the people. Mr Moxam was elected by the chamber to help businesses big difference my friend.

    As President Mr. Moxam is doing more to advocate for Cayman and Chamber members than any other before him. His focused approach to representing views of the members is admired and greatly appreciated. As a business owner Moxam has provided the Chamber with clear direction and dependable leadership which has brought new life to a once floundering group.

    I see a bright future for this young man he has the type of leadership qualities, courage and mature approach to life needed in government today to move the country forward. Keep up the good work.

    I am not a Chamber member, but i think the past 16 months of this Govt. In office just sucks and I curse the day i supported them. The PPM is no different from the UDP all of these parties suck. Next election vote for anyone who wasn’t there before and that folks will be the safest way to go. Remember if you give the newcomers a second chance you have to pay them pension for life. I strongly suggest you cut off that life support line that you and I will be indebted to them until they die.

      You should consider supporting policies rather than politicians, that way you will not be as disappointed. The coming OMOV will be a big help in that regard, and whilst I agree with you last sentence, the best way to deal with that is to elect someone who has a stated "policy" that elected members do not deserve a lifetime pension for having served two terms in office. There is no reason why that cannot be changed.

    The Chamber's public advocacy agenda is a very good idea.  I would like to see it happen soon, they did a very good job at the UN when they demanded that we get internal self government.  It did not happen but it cleared the issue that was very unclear for a long time.  The Chamber is very effective and should work with government in running the country.

      This could not be the same Chamber whose membership condones hiring cheap imported labour coupled with stagnate salaries from the 1990’s. Nah you are not speaking of the one I an thinking of. If they have anymore say in how government is run we are doomed to slavery.
