Mangaluru, 06 Dec 2023: The Rachana Catholic Chamber of Commerce and Industry orchestrated a resounding success with its "Members Connect" event on November 26, held at Ladies Club, Lighthouse Road, Mangaluru.


The purpose of this event was not just to bring members together but to weave a tapestry of collaboration, recognising the transformative power businesses wield in shaping societal progress.


The evening commenced with a prayer led by Dr Jessica Monteiro and her team.



President John B Monteiro extended a gracious welcome to the distinguished members and guests offering an insightful glimpse into the ethos of the Rachana Catholic Chamber of Commerce & Industry.


He underscored the significance of cultivating a robust entrepreneurial community and accentuated how businesses could play a pivotal role in societal development. The unique approach of Member Connect, prioritising collaboration over competition, was emphasised.


The Chief Guest for the evening, Mr. Anil Albert Dsouza, Advocate at the High Court of Karnataka, was invited to the stage by President John B Monteiro while Mr. Gilbert Dsouza extended a floral welcome.


The Chief Guest picked a visiting card from the lot, and Mr John Phelix Dsouza emerged as the lucky winner, designating him as the Guest of Honour for the event. Vice President Naveen Lobo welcomed the Guest of Honour with a bouquet.


A unique representation was introduced to symbolise the integration and unity fostered by the event. President John B Monteiro held one piece, and the Guest of Honour, Mr. John Phelix Dsouza, held the other, while the chief guest held the bridge that connected it all. This visual metaphor beautifully encapsulated the collaborative spirit promoted by Members Connect.


To help members connect and establish a quick introduction, a template with the members’ names, professions, and businesses was released.
