9.2 Following the Dalby Chamber of Commerce contacting Mr. Norm Purcival regarding a letter of support from the Jandowae community to go with a submission from the combined old councils to the new Council for funding of staff to run the chambers, Mr Craig Tunley, Business & Industry Coordinator, DRC. addressed the meeting. He was supported by Councillor Mick Cosgrove. Mr. Tunley outlined what the other towns had in way of such organizations and spoke in particular of the Dalby chamber. Without such a body in our area we could miss out on receiving a lot of information as to what is going on within the Shire and this could mean being left out of business opportunities. Councillor Cosgrove did say that any organization that was trying to help themselves, that was incorporated, and applied for grant funding would still be considered.
President Ros advised that an organization such as a Chamber of Commerce, or business council could be set up as a separate entity under the umbrella of our association. It was resolved that contact be made verbally with all interested parties and a meeting be called to address this matter. Both Mr Tunley and Councillor Cosgrove said that they would be happy to attend such a meeting,
President Ros thanked both for attending the meeting.
As there was no further business the Chairman closed the meeting at 9.05.pm.
The next meeting will be held
Monday 2nd. June 2008.
