LETTER TO PERSONS OF INTEREST

ON INAUGRAL FRASER COAST

CHAMBER OF COMMERCE CONFERENCE

white-envelope

10th July 2009

We spoke last night at the inaugral meeting of the Fraser Coast Chamber of Commerce by the executives and delegates of the various local chambers at Susan River Homestead to replace the Wide Bay Chamber of Commerce and still maintaining the autonomy of each of the existing chambers.

Represented by:-
Tiaro
Maryborough
Burrum District
Hervey bay

Your MB Chamber contact details with all web and email links would be appreciated so we can place these details into our web site for access to all of our members under the affiliates link.

We also are open to constructive advice on inclusions into our web presence that will benefit our members.

I [on behalf of the Burrum Chamber of Commerce] am further requesting from the Hervey Bay chamber
who recorded proceeding for the night to supply us at the earliest a transcript of what was discussesd as well as contact emails etc for all attendees of that meeting.and official contact points, links and info
of all the chambers involved.

It is our aim also to avail ourselves of the opportunity to encourage members of other chambers in the district to become members of our Burrum chamber for the princely sum of $40 per annum.
For this they will get a full page write-up in our web site www.burrumcc.org.au
and many other advantages from our members by way of potential business.
Our arguement is that it costs that much for a few lines in the classifieds of the local paper for one day.
Here for their $40 they  get a lot more over an entire year.
This is a no brainer ladies and gentlemen..
The rates are set to rise shortly so get in quickly and have it fixed for the next full year.

Once we obtain  a transcript of proceedings of the meeting,
we shall post an approved sterilized version of the meeting in our site as well

Please feel free to selectively distribute copies of this email to any and all who may benefit from receiving same.
Any email addresses the chambers and others can supply to us for receipt of our regular mailouts would also be appreciated.

Please forward info via email back to this email.

We have understood that at last nights meeting Burrum Chamber president Bill raised the issue of availablity of our local community hall
for the first new Fraser Coast Chamber of Commerce meeting set for October 2009. We look forward to it being held here @ Howard..

Can recipients of this email pass it on to those who can action a response for the information we seek.?

It was the consensus of the delegates at the conference that we must  maintain effective dialogue and communication between the individual chambers when dealing with commercial issues and council matters effecting our members.

This is why we now seek to share and access the relevant data to enable us to do the above with vigour and purpose.

Congratulations on a great night and look forward to the Future of the Fraser Coast Chamber of Commerce.
and a thank you to our conference host Norm at Susan River Homestead

CHAMBER DIRECTIONAL LETTER TO CHAMBER BY OUR PRESIDENT 1998

NOTE THE EARLIER ADVICES BY OUR PRESIDENT ON THE DIRECTION OF THE BURRUM CHAMBER OF COMMERCE

white-envelope

To:- Secretary

Burrum Chamber of Commerce

Po Box 59

Howard Q4659

Re:- Meeting 4th Februrary 1998

Dear Sir

During the above mentioned meeting my name was brought forward for nomination to an executive position. My sincere thanks for that proposal, which I had to decline for the following reasons.

1…No opportunity prior to the meeting to study the constitution

2…My fear that the Chamber would develop into a community oriented group, rather than an organization promoting trade and business with the added benefits to the community.

Having now perused the constitution and rules, and listened in at the meeting. My impressions stated in [2] were confirmed.

My opinion is that there sufficient organizations working hard for the community and they should be supported by anyone who feels they can contribute.

The Chamber of Commerce should be first and foremost to promote trade and commerce and support other organizations where their interests are similar.

A broad based Chamber of Commerce as proposed will have to deal with often divisive issues and could well become impotent in its decision making.

[ie. The goal issue-tourist development plans-redirecting roads or traffic-creating new businesses in recycling or extraction industries etc.]

In addition, is it really in the interest of good business management, owner operated or not, to debate in open forum matters relating to wages, conditions, future directions etc?

Respectfully, I suggest the Executive look at the following articles and suggested changes/amendments..>

Art…5.

Delete all after “commerce and industry” and insert “registered as such with consumer affairs or other appropriate institution”.

Art…10.

Insert c.: The Chamber may invite members of community based organizations [Progress, P & C, etc] so nominated by their organization to selected meetings where co-operation and or consultation is desirable. Reciprocal invitations should be sought.

Sir, I thank you for your indulgence and trust that your executive will read this letter in the constructive spirit in which it was written.

As it stands. I regret I cannot become a member of the chamber and, by my discussions with other people I find I am not alone.

Time permitting, it is my intention to attend another meeting in the near future

Yours Faithfully

W.C. Gosewisch

Under all circumstances we must maintain our focus and direction as per the above 1998 outline which is as relevent then as it is now..

We are a commercially oriented group structured to maintain and promote new and current business development in the Burrum area.

Lest we forget..!!
