Dear friends,

As we move into a new year, it is hard not to reflect on the year that has passed.

Every year has its challenges, but 2020 brought circumstances that none of us shall ever forget. Some of us experienced hardships we could not imagine, others were scared for our loved ones… most of us saw our businesses change, for better or for worse, but through it all, Albert County has shown that it has strength in its community.

We created the Atlantic Bubble, we moved businesses online, we brought in social distancing measures in our workplaces, we supported each other in unique and creative ways, and as a community, we ensured that COVID would not bring us down.

I would like to say that 2021 will be easy; that things will “get back to normal”. But it doesn’t seem like this will happen any time soon. Instead, I want to make you a promise. As President of the ACCC, I can promise you that we will create new support and opportunities for all our members, and the community as a whole. I can promise you that we will do our utmost to showcase just how special Albert County is, and that we will help you to connect with likeminded people, with new deals, and with new ideas.

Whatever 2021 may hold, it will not catch us off-guard in the same way as 2020. We have a strong foundation, we have strategies in place, and we will support each other. We will end 2021 with our community in a better place than ever before. We will make 2021 our year and the ACCC will be there to support you.

Stay safe and have a fantastic start to your year.

Michelle Alcorn
