Chamber of Commerce evolving

A new constitution for the Bundaberg and District Chamber of Commerce was adopted at the AGM.

Incoming president Tim Sayre said the new constitution better reflected the Bundaberg business community and legislation today and into the future.

“Over the past few months the Chamber has been moving through some deliberate changes – from a new logo and website to today’s adoption of our new constitution,” he said.

“This spirit of change will continue as we continue to ensure the Chamber remains relevant to our business community.”

“A Chamber of Commerce is an integral part of any town or city, supporting local businesses by providing education, networking opportunities and increased exposure,” he said.

“I encourage everyone to get involved, to create connections and to support one another in creating a thriving business community.”
