New President Elected

New President Elected

Omagh Chamber of Commerce held its Annual General Meeting in Sallys, John Street on Tuesday 17th June where Dominic McClements, general manager of the North-West News Group, was elected as its new President. Outgoing President, Julian McKeown, thanked the members for their support throughout his busy year in office and wished Dominic every success during his time as President.

Paying tribute to the outgoing president Mr McClements said he was honoured to be appointed to lead the chamber in 2014/2015 and he appealed for the business community in the wider Omagh district to support the work of the chamber in trying to develop the local economic environment.

“All local businesses have come through or are still going through an extremely tough economic cycle but there is an encouraging air of positivity in the district. We need to keep building on that but more importantly we need to work more closer than ever to engage with and serve the local community.

“As a representative group the chamber can offer a network of support for everyone. It is a forum where business owners can share ideas and offer guidance but most importantly the chamber can act as a single voice for everyone.

“It is therefore very important for all of us to encourage others to join the chamber and that we all become proactive in devising business initiatives and programmes that can help everyone in the entire community thrive.
