London Chamber of Commerce and Industry celebrates success of PA Club

An event celebrating the first birthday of the highly successful PA Club was held recently by the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry at the America Square Conference Centre.

The LCCI invited 70 top executive PA’s to a fun-filled event designed to thank club members and attract some new recruits. Guests were entertained, wined and dined in America Square’s Cornhill Suite, where a whole section of the original Roman London Wall (built around AD200) is the centre piece.

“The objective for holding this party was to highlight the Club’s phenomenal success during its first year, and having considered our options carefully, like a lot of organisations in this currently difficult economic climate, we believe a live event of this type delivers on all marketing fronts and is an important part of the mix,” said Josie Rogers, membership sales manager for the LCCI.

“Also it’s a good opportunity for PAs to meet their peers to discuss what is happening within the workplace and provide moral support for each other if they are experiencing difficulties in the job market.”

The speed at which the PA Club has grown and its popularity has surpassed all expectations.

“We launched the Club to help our members reach this important client sector via, in essence, a free comprehensive and informative venues and events service for PA’s,” Rogers continued. 

“It has taken on a life of its own and we are encouraged by the fact that we are now regularly attracting new members to the Chamber via the PA Club.

“We have plans to develop the content of our PA Club monthly newsletter, which is distributed to over 1,000 venue bookers, to incorporate more PA news and training opportunities. Also we will be continuing our venue site visit programme, which has also proved extremely popular with club members.”

The LCCI also confirmed announced the launch of a LCCI PA of the Year Award at the PA Club Birthday Party.

The new America Square Conference Centre was chosen by LCCI because of its location in the heart of London, within a few minutes walking distance of several underground stations, and for its contemporary light and airy décor, and exceptional facilities.

“The LCCI’s decision to hold the PA Club’s first birthday celebrations at America Square demonstrates the total flexibility of the space within this new venue,” said Tom Mayers, Cavendish Conference venue director. “We are delighted to be working so closely with LCCI and helping to ensure the party is a huge success.”
