One year later, the business environment remains disrupted. We can all agree, however, that it is also a year of innovation ushering new trends in workforce dynamics, sustainable business models, and a surge in digital technologies. It opens doors for creative disruption that will, hopefully, help businesses overcome present challenges. In fact, it was during this time that some of us had to take a step back, recover, and pivot. Your ECCP team continues to set the stage for the business community to discuss pressing issues and share best practices amongst each other . Since we shifted our Chamber activities online, we were able to host over 180 events with 12,000+ in attendance. We also welcomed new annual partners and members with a retention rate of 92.9%. Your chamber also takes pride to have been recognized by the Philippine Economic Zone Authority for the Galing Pinas Ecozone Investment Partnership Award 2021, a win we share with you as the Team ECCP.
As we confront the year ahead, the ECCP remains committed to you, our valued community, as we continue to redefine the meaning of doing business and remain relevant in an increasingly unpredictable landscape.
We're bringing all of you together for the largest gathering of members this year at the Annual General Membership (AGM) Meeting. Please save the date and join us on 16 June 2021 from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM. The AGM will immediately be followed by an industry fair where we get to highlight our members and efforts in the following arenas: Innovations & Technology, Sustainability, Energy, and Environment & Water.
We encourage all members to submit their registration or proxy forms on or before Monday, 7 June 2021. In the event that you will not be available to join, kindly send your duly-signed proxy form (5-year) instead, to ensure that your company will still be represented at the meeting.
