As a Chamber of Commerce we have a number of committees that support the Chamber in delivering its vision and objectives for members and the greater community.

We have four committees namely Marketing, Membership, Events and the Blue Water Festival committee. Each committee plays a big part in our Chamber and each has a dedicated and efficient team that works towards benefiting our members and the community by creating opportunities.

We encourage and welcome our members to become a part of these committees so if you like to be a part of one of our committees email the relevant Committee Chair with your interest.
