The election for a new president for the Montego Bay Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MBCCI) will be the top item at the chamber's Annual General Meeting set for tomorrow at the Wexford Hotel in Montego Bay.

Three candidates are vying to replace outgoing president T’Shura Gibbs who is not seeking re-election after one term.

They are entrepreneur and vice president Brian Brown, Winston Lawson, banker at the National Commercial Bank (NCB), and businessman Norman Reid.
While not generating the level of interest that existed last year when Gibbs challenged the formidable Gloria Henry and came away with a resounding 50-35 win, it is believed that based on the many fine qualities they bring to the table, Brown, Lawson and Reid are all seen as worthy contenders.

In addition to the election of a new president, other matters on the agenda at the AGM include the election of vice presidents and directors, the appointment of auditors, and the Report of the Board of Directors for the year 2017/2018.

The MBCCI, which has been one of the pillars supporting business development in the western city for over eight decades, has been the driving force behind stellar events such as the city's premier trade show the Montego Bay Chamber of Commerce and Industry Expo; and the MoBay ‘Wall of Fame,’ which highlights the achievements of persons who have made exemplary contributions to Montego Bay.
