REPORT ON FRASER COAST CHAMBER of COMMERCE –
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.

Dear Fraser Coast Chamber Presidents,
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.
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.
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 protected] or 41290182/41290995
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.
