Happy Anniversary to Us!
August 1, 2017 - today we celebrate the 19th Anniversary of ContactNB! In 1998, the New Brunswick Customer Contact Centre Industry Association (NBCCCIA) was formed by representatives from a handful of contact centres who felt that working together and forming an association would benefit the growing contact centre industry as a whole. Later it was renamed ContactNB and has now grown to an association with members representing about 7,000 employees from 33 centres across the province. We also have 16 Associate/Elite Associate Members who provide products or services that support the industry.
We enjoy an excellent working relationship with the New Brunswick Government through their OpportunitiesNB representatives. OpportunitiesNB has listed Business Support Centres (Contact Centres) as one of their growth opportunities in the New Brunswick Economic Growth Plan. "Our vision for the New Brunswick business services centre sector is to be a global leader, identifying and addressing corporate needs while providing stable, well-paid employment and economic value to the province's residents," said Economic Development Minister Francine Landry, who is also minister responsible for OpportunitiesNB.
We are also working closely with post-secondary education institutions to help shape the future of employees joining our workforce over the next 2-5 years.
As we start on our 20th year of serving the Contact Centre industry, we welcome your active involvement in association activities, surveys and events, and your participation in meetings with government and post-secondary education that will ultimately help to benefit your businesses in this great industry.
THANK YOU to our Members, Associate/Elite Associate Members, sponsors and industry supporters for the past 19 years and for helping to move the mission of ContactNB forward into the future.
Business Services Centres 2017 Opportunity Summit
Thank you to all attendees who joined in the conversation at the Business Services Centres Opportunities Summit on Monday, April 3rd in Moncton. It was a great open discussion between members of the Business Services Centre community and representatives of our provincial government. This sector is of great interest to Premier Brian Gallant, his cabinet and ONB as it drives a big part of the economic engine of our province.
