President Message

Dear Chapter Members,

I welcome you to our Newsletter. We intend that it should become an- other good way of sharing our knowledge, news and views of interest to other members and the Qatar business community. Naturally, every first effort, such is this Newsletter, can be significantly improved upon, and that is where every member comes in. I encourage you to write, clip, photograph and provide suitable and interesting con- tent for our Newsletter. May I also take this opportunity, at the close of another very busy cycle for the Chapter, to thank the Committee Members and Chapter Officers as well as supporting members for helping to make the Chapter the success it is. I would also like to remind everyone that we have elections for Chapter Officers – being the President, Vice-President, Treasurer and Secretary, on 30 April 2006. Further details will be provided to you soon.

Best wishes, William

On 1 June 2005, we had the first board transition in the Chapter, welcoming our first Qatari board member, which is a very good development for us. by the middle of August, the Chapter has reached the very significant mark of 150 members. However, the best is always yet to come and, in December 2005 the 200th member joined us. In our understated manner, We have celebrated by recognizing that member in our 26 February 2006 Seminar.
