The Narooma Chamber of Commerce invite you to come, speak with your colleagues, spread the word and help us find new, enthusiastic committee members to help drive tourism initiatives and economic progress at the AGM which is coming up this Tuesday 27th November..
Chamber Vice-President Adrian Fisse said in a social media announcement "our president, Niels Bendixsen, vice president Adrian Fisse will be stepping down after 3 years, as will secretary and treasurers Vonnie Hutcheson & Michael Gardner." "The Oyster Festival committee is continuing on for another year and working on plans to help relieve the chamber of this enormous task in years to come.
"This is a great time to get together with your friends, colleagues and business associates and help to keep Narooma moving forward.
"We have put in place many systems to make the task easier, and the social format of our meetings have been popular, a lot of fun and successful in allowing businesses to introduce themselves and to form new relationships! The current chamber looks forward to continued participation, just not as executive members.
