AGM at Sovereign Harbour Yacht Club
An unprecedented five new Directors were elected at this year's Chamber AGM. It is simply fantastic to see the interest we have generated in our Chamber of Commerce and we are delighted to welcome them all aboard.
The AGM was held at the yacht club with beautiful harbour views on Wednesday 17th May in the Royal Sovereign Suite and we were welcomed by the Commodore, Dickie Bird, and made to feel very welcome.
I apologise that I was unable to be with you but I understand that the Vice President, Stewart Pierce, managed the meeting very effectively. The minutes of the meeting are shown below along with the accounts and the presentations by:

Why I'm a Member
"In 2015, Eastbourne UnLtd made Christmas for our town with over 50,000 people visiting the centre as a direct result of the activities managed and co-ordinated by the Chamber. One of the highlights was the Coca Cola truck which proved what a night time economy can look like."
