We often tell our members that they should consider us at the Labrador North Chamber of Commerce (LNCC) an extension of their own staff. We work together on many important economic development projects and initiatives, and together we strive to secure the socio-economic well-being of our more than 160 member organizations. Whether discussing significant business matters one-on-one or lobbying government and other groups on our members’ behalf, we never stop working for you.

Incorporated in 1986 as a not-for-profit membership-based organization, the LNCC continues to serve the Central Labrador business community through a variety of programs, services, and special events. These include initiatives such as NorthLink, monthly membership meetings and lunch and learn events with high-profile speakers, the biannual Northern Lights Business and Cultural Showcase, the annual Expo Labrador Conference and Trade Exhibition, and now the newly established biannual Northern Exposure Labrador Opportunity Conference and Trade Show. As if planning our own events didn’t keep us busy enough, we can also help to plan yours. In 2011, the LNCC launched its own destination events management brand, Venture North, and since then have planned a number of highly successful events for a variety of clients.

The Chamber works closely with surrounding communities, economic development agencies, relevant government and community groups, and local businesses to partner on initiatives that help residents and the business community remain competent and competitive in order to raise the profile of the Central Labrador region.

I am honoured to once again lead the Labrador North Chamber of Commerce into 2013. As always, I look forward to the challenges that come with the position, as well as the many, many rewards. As I often say, success comes from the people involved.

Best wishes,
Sterling Peyton
President
Labrador North Chamber of Commerce
