Our Executive Committee members are a group of local business and community minded people. We are here to keep our members informed and act as a business advocate for our local area. Our commitment is to the economic, tourism, social, creative, educational and environmental development of our local area.
Membership with the Chamber provides many benefits to your business and to our community.
Through the Chamber Alliance Program our members are provided a Local Chamber Limited Membership package at no cost. The entitlements of this membership include:
- – Access to the Business Hotline (where you are connected to the right information, support and advice for all your business questions).
- – Business Legals Toolkit (for sample commercial agreements, templates and other legal business documents).
- – ‘Ask Us How’ business guides.
Networking can provide a significant boost to business and the chamber offers a number of formats where members can take the opportunity to meet, discuss and exchange ideas. Members are encouraged to connect with other like-minded business owners and operators at our various events and meetings.
Politicians and Local Council
The Chamber has excellent relationships with both the Council and local political representatives. We encourage members to let us know of any issues affecting their business that we could raise on your behalf at our periodic meetings.
There are a myriad of funding opportunities available from various sources. The chamber can help ascertain whether your project can attract funding and assist with submitting an application.
The chamber encourages members to take advantage of the free Lunch and Learn seminars conducted by our local experts. If there is a particular aspect of your business that you would like to see covered in these sessions, contact our Events Committee Members to discuss.
All members receive a link under our Local Business Members page. Our Facebook page is now active and we encourage members to utilise this media to increase their exposure.
We encourage our members to be pro-active about their businesses and welcome the opportunity to discuss presentations, seminars or sponsorship at any of our events or meetings.
This package is available to all businesses and includes all member benefits. The annual fee is $150.
Our premium membership package includes all of the benefits or our normal membership, but has the added benefit of a more prominent listing in our membership directory. This includes multiple pictures of you and your business along with a detailed description of your business. The annual fee for this premium membership level is only $200
This package is available to businesses and organisations that in addition to member benefits, includes extended business recognition and profile, and presenting rights at various events. Please contact us for further information and costs on these packages.
