The Calgary Chamber’s New Chair: Brent Cooper on the path forward
Business in Calgary magazine features McLeod Law's, Brent Cooper on the front page story: "The Calgary Chamber's New Chair: Brent Cooper on the path forward".
Brent shares his optimistic outlook, and some of the Calgary Chamber's key initiatives, including formalizing changes to the Chamber’s bylaws and engaging in the Canadian Global Cities Council (CGCC), an organization of eight chambers from across Canada. As well as remaining non-partisan, acting as the ‘podium of record’ for various government levels' to examine every issue through a business filter.
Brent acknowledges the major economic challenges facing the city but the aim is to change the conversation from negative to positive. “We feel that the economy is ready for more positive discussions and actions,” he says.
“We’ve got to lead,” he reiterates. “We have to take a leadership position, particularly in terms of expressing positive stories that are happening and injecting informed hope into the marketplace.”
