July 28, 2009   CHAMBER CEO SURVEY FIRST QUARTER, 2009

In February 2009, the World Chambers Federation (WCF) launched its first Chamber CEO Survey to measure the impact of the economic crisis on chambers of commerce.
This survey was inspired from similar research undertaken by the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) and The Center in mapping the first impact on the economic crisis on the association sector in the USA.
Chamber leaders from over 60 countries took part in the survey. Responses were received from key metropolitan chambers, regional and national chambers, as well as public and private law chamber structures (i.e. mandatory and voluntary membership systems).
The result of the survey confirms the discrepancy between facts and fears that are often linked to global dealings. details
