Jan-Fryderyk Pleszczynski, New President of the Jeune Chambre de commerce de Montréal

MONTREAL, June 1 - The Board of Directors of the Jeune Chambre de commerce de Montréal (JCCM) is pleased to announce the appointment of Jan-Fryderyk Pleszczynski to the post of president for the 2005-2006 mandate. Practicing in corporate law at Fasken Martineau, Pleszczynski has been active in the JCCM for many years and was VP Public Affairs in the previous mandate.

"The JCCM has a mission: to generate the success of its members, to look out for their interests and to contribute to the variety of environments in which they are evolving," stated Pleszczynski. "As we approach our 75th year of operations, I hope that the JCCM will be perceived as a catalysing force in its field. In order to do this, we are improving our outreach to the anglophone and allophone communities to increase our capacity to truly represent the needs of young businesspeople who live and work in metropolitan Montreal. We are also reaching out more and more to other organizations. I should also mention that we are increasing our social commitment this year, something that has already become second nature for our organization. The JCCM will continue to promote its various files and to participate in public debates on the issues with which we're most concerned, including work-life balance, university financing, immigration, energy, productivity, entrepreneurship and the rights of self-employed workers."
