Chamber Briefs New Council Leaders

23 June 2022 • Sarah Medcraf

On Wednesday 22nd June (yesterday) Councillors Marc Macrae and Neil McLennan met with Sarah Medcraf the Chief Executive of Moray Chamber of Commerce.

After the meeting, Cllr Macrae, Convener of Moray Council said –

“I was delighted when Sarah was able to accept our invitation to meet with both myself and Council Co-leader Neil McLennan.

“The Chambers membership covers a wide range of industries and commerce across Moray and we felt it important to touch base as soon as possible after the administration was formed to ensure that companies, no matter how large or small they be, can be assured that the challenges facing them and also their views, are important to us all moving forwards.

“There are many many success stories across Moray, with products and services becoming know at home and overseas, but much more could be done to encourage local entrepreneurs and also to lobby the Scottish Government to ensure funding streams are available covering a wide range of applicants and not limited to just a few sectors.”

Cllr Neil McLennan Co-leader of Moray Council added –

“Getting Sarah along to the council to meet with us and to establish good communication links with the new administration has been a priority of ours since the group was formed.

“Many of the challenges facing sole proprietors and all the way up to some of the largest companies in Moray, are similar if not the same and it was useful to hear actual workplace examples of the issues facing employers and employees daily as we continue to try and return to some more normal form of life following the pandemic.

“This is just the first of many meetings to come with various local groups and bodies and further emphasises the desire of the Moray Conservative council group to work collaboratively and in partnership both internally and externally of the council.”

Sarah Medcraf of Moray Chamber of Commerce added: "I welcomed the invitation to meet with the convener and co-leader. There is a lot happening in Moray and it's important we all play our part. Partnership working is key to the success of Moray's future and I hope this is the start of many meetings"
