BURRUM CHAMBER OF COMMERCE REPORT ON SEPT 2009 MEETING

SEPTEMBER MEETING OF THE BURRUM CHAMBER

MINUTES REPLACED WITH THE FOLLOWING

calendar-book

The date was set for the last meeting of the Burrum Chamber of Commerce for Sept 2009 but was cancelled as there were health issues with our president Bill and he was out of action.

He is now well on the way to recovery and we are glad of that.

Our secretary Rhonda and vice president were also not available because of pre commitments on that date. All is now back on track for our annual AGM on Oct 5th 2009.

WE TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO HIGHLIGHT SOME POINTS ABOUT THE BURRUM CHAMBER OF COMMERCE

1…The Burrum Chamber of Commerce will be hosting the first meeting of the newly formed Fraser Coast Chamber of Commerce @ a date fixed in October to replace the Wide Bay Chamber of Commerce. This new entity represents all of the 4 existing local chambers of commerce, Tiaro-Hervey Bay-Maryborough-Burrum District and is only open to executives attending from each of the chambers. Each of the chambers will co-exist in their own right in addition to having a united voice for regional development.

A stronger business representation for the entire Fraser Coast Region is the outcome.

2…The Burrum Chamber was represented @ the latest meeting of the Fraser Coast GREET tourism and job creation programme by publicity officer Henry Sapiecha due to the absence of our president due to his ill health

3…New members are encouraged to join the chamber

@ $60 per annum.

The benefits are great, with free advertising and promotions for each of the members as well as networking with other chambers, councilors, newspapers, fellow members and community leaders and citizens. Come to a meeting as our invited guest @ no charge.

4…Mail outs via emails are regular as are web site postings of events, notices, announcements, meeting minutes, interesting business & community articles and invitations etc from our chamber and affiliates. View here www.burrumcc.org.au

5…Existing members are reminded that yearly subscription fees are now due

WE WISH THE BUSINESS COMMUNITY of the FRASER COAST GREAT SUCCESS & PROFITS IN THEIR COMMITTMENT IN OFFERING THE LOCAL REGION THEIR SERVICES AND PRODUCTS.

FRASER COAST CHAMBER of COMMERCE UPDATE – FCCC QLD.

REPORT ON FRASER COAST CHAMBER of COMMERCE  –

book3

FCCC

Recently executives of the Burum Chamber and those from Hervey Bay – Maryborough & Tiaro met at the Susan River Homestead to draft a memorandum of understanding for the formulation of what is to be known as the-

FRASER COAST CHAMBER OF COMMERCE.

to replace the original Wide Bay Chamber of Commerce.

A president was nominated for the body [Steve Dixon] and a draft of the new chambers structure was discussed.

Herein I have posted in a short intro letter of a longer submission  Steve gave all executives by way of a report on proceedings and of the minutes for that meeting

An earlier report & pics on the event I had posted into this site for members access  can be found in the July archives of this site.

Go to FCCC catergory of this site in the Right  Hand Column

Dear Fraser Coast Chamber Presidents,

Steve Dixon

dscf0068

I have received very encouraging feedback from all the local chambers following our dinner on the 9th July about the ideals and fellowship associated with the Fraser Coast Chamber. This is a solid foundation upon which we can continue to develop the Chamber movement across our region.

Last Meeting

I would appreciate it if I was included in your executive circulation lists so I can monitor issues that may be of interest across all the local chambers.  I certainly respect the sovereignty of each individual chamber, and will not be put out if I am excluded from any particular issue or discussion, but if the President of the Fraser Coast Chamber is generally included in the circulation lists amongst your executive then over time we will find better cohesion amongst the chambers.

Please raise this issue with your committees.

Next Meeting

I am grateful the Burrum District Chamber has so enthusiastically risen to the challenge of organising the next regional meeting and note we are to meet at the Burrum Districts Community Centre on Thursday 15th October at 5.00pm for 5.30pm with what is becoming the usual meeting format with a dinner break at 6.30pm. and would appreciate all chambers executives responding direct to the Burrum Chamber confirming their atendance via   

email_icon[email protected] or   red-dial-phone41290182/41290995

Economic Development……….>>>

More information only available to executives of all the chambers on request and those who need to know….

PLEASE NOTE THAT ONLY THE EXECUTIVES OF ALL THE CURRENT FOUR CHAMBERS OF COMMERCE IN THE FRASER COAST REGION CAN PARTICIPATE IN THE FCCC MEETINGS UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTIFIED OR INVITED.

I will however report to members and affiliates on developments.
