Chamber to host Pathways panel discussion

Bermuda Chamber of Commerce will host a panel discussion on the controversial Pathways to Status bill next week

The event on Thursday, June 16, at 8am at the Hamilton Princess, will feature a panel of community activists and industry professionals, including Citizens Uprooting Racism in Bermuda president Lynne Winfield, economist Craig Simmons and former HSBC Bermuda chief executive officer Phil Butterfield. The session will be moderated by Chamber of Commerce president John Wight. A press release said the immigration bill had caused a “stir in the community, with strong views and opinions ... from all sides” and the panel would “weigh in on how this bill would impact Bermuda socially, politically, and economically”.

Registration fees for the panel discussion are $50 for chamber members and $75 for non-members. Member tables of 10 are available for $500 per table. Registration is online at www.bermudachamber.bm or by calling 295-4201 or e-mailing slee@bcc.bm.

• This article was amended to reflect that the panel discussion will take place on Thursday, June 16 — not Friday as initially reported.
