NCCA Newsletter
February 2018

Dear Members,                 

Welcome to the first newsletter of the year – we hope you've had a great start to 2018!    

We are very pleased to present you with an exciting new and contemporary format for the NCCA newsletter. A quarterly newsletter that we will be sending out to our members, supporters and stakeholders to keep you up to date on what's happening at the Chamber such as events, news and messages from members. The revamped newsletter and our new website are the result of the great work Supporting Partner RedHotMinute did with our board. It's been a pleasure working with the team at RedHotMinute and we were very proud revealing the fantastic result at our End of Year Dinner last November. Please visit our website on in case you haven't seen it since we switched to the new format in December of last year.

What's next? The first event of the year will be Networking Drinks on 22 February at the DoubleTree by Hilton. We look forward to welcoming you all and to have toast to the new year – a year that the NCCA is very much looking forward to. We are currently planning our calendar for the year and it's promising to be an action-packed year with regular as well as new events to look forward to.

Finally, the board would also like to take this opportunity to welcome our newest board member Suzanne Weeda to the team. Suzanne works for NCCA's Corporate Member KPMG and has already proven to be a great support in the lead up to the sold out End of Year Dinner last November. Welcome Suzanne!

Thank you again to all our Members and Partners for your support throughout 2017 and we very much look forward to welcoming you at our events in 2018!

Met vriendelijke groet,

Sander van Amelsvoort
