For over 3 years, I had the opportunity to take part of the Montreal Chapter of the Indo-Canada Chamber of Commerce.
Founded in 1977, the Indo-Canada Chamber of Commerce (ICCC) is a non-profit, non-partisan organization. The ICCC’s mission is to be the premier, privately funded, Indo-Canadian business organization in Canada by:
- Promoting the business, professional, and general well-being of Indo-Canadians.
- Creating positive awareness of the high degree of contribution of the Indo-Canadian business and professional community.
- Facilitating business and trade opportunities between Canada and India, and the Indian diaspora throughout the world.
My role on the executive committee of the ICCC consisted of organizing and promoting a series of events to the Greater Montréal business community. In particular, I had the opportunity of organizing:
- A distinguished speaker lecture series;
- A Networking event for Montréal-based business leaders;
- A Networking event for IIM Exec MBA students at McGill with Canadian business leaders;
- An Open House cocktail.
This experience being part of the Indo-Canadian business community helped me assert my leadership and organization skills, while providing me with a venue in which to collaborate with local business leaders in the Montréal area.
