Burrum Chamber of Commerce president Mr Bill Goeswisch and the chambers publicity officer Henry Sapiecha were invited and attended a meeting called for a gathering of profiled members of the community who could best contribute to promoting a mindset of working together as a team to attract business, industry and tourism to this region generally with a regional job creation outcome.

The meeting was held at the TAFE Maryborough campus today 29th May 2009 from 10:30AM TO 12:30PM

Pauline Rees and Councillor O’Connel both had steered the discussions to relevant issues and maintained a focus on the agenda set prior to the meeting.

The subjects generally were revolving around:-

1…Job training and opportunities.

2…Tourism to the region.

3…Encouraging business to the areas we represent.

4…Cohesive & stimulating approach to promoting our region.

5…Application for a grant to promote the region.

A number of attendees spoke on areas of their expertise to the gathering and it was moved that a steering committee be formed as well as a project management committee to oversee the application of the principles so formulaated in these meetings of the minds.

Job Creation and opportunities as well as training options can be viewed and discussed at length at some upcoming events..
