Eumundi Chamber of Commerce (ECC) has had a great year with the launch of the new website and steady growth in membership over the year with members representing a diverse range of industry sectors throughout 4562.
Guest speakers representing associations or bodies such as Regional Development Australia, FAN and Sunshine Coast Council have been engaging with members at member breakfast functions with opportunities being born from these networking events.
A number of issues such as Council’s budget allocation to upgrade the main street, and member’s concerns regarding the frequency and number of car parking inspectors have also been mooted with Cr Rogerson attending the last breakfast meeting of the year on 6 December to provide updates.
The Eumundi Business Awards was again a wonderful event with two winners taking out Chamber’s top award of ‘Best Business’ being The Store Eumundi and the Australian Wearable Art Inc and Big Heart Bamboo taking out the ‘Emerging Business Award.
The management team have observed over the past year the amount of time and investment that large numbers of businesses put into their products and services which can only be commended for a township our size.
From a regional perspective, the team firmly believes there is so much vibrancy in tourism product within the township. Within our local centre, we are seeing new music and artisan events emerging as well as tourists enjoying our destination shopping experiences.
Within the Eumundi region, there is also an amazing array of professionals, health and well being related practitioners, accommodation providers as well as experts in trades and services that are enriching our township and providing the community with a rich network of opportunity for sustainability and growth.
If any business owners wish to join as a new chamber member now, membership fees will be half price up until 31 January 2019 with renewal due in May 2020.
On behalf of the management committee of ECC, we wish you and your families a very happy and safe Christmas and New Year.
