SPECIAL GUEST: NSW chief planner Gary White will visit Coffs Harbour on January 30. – Salty Dingo
Welcome to 2018.
On behalf of the board of management at the chamber we wish members and the community a prosperous new year.
Weather has been good to us over the Christmas break and reports indicate tourism numbers have slightly increased in comparison to 2016-17.
This is fantastic news, not only for accommodation houses and retailers but for all businesses due to the flow-on across the community.
As was recently aired on NBN News: “Coffs has great food, it’s a great place and has great people.”
Let’s continue to build on that and keep our focus on giving tourists and locals a great customer experience so they spread the word of how good we really are so we reap rewards from providing that experience.
The chamber’s door is always open. If you are in business or just starting out, we know it gets tough sometimes and it’s great to have a network of like-minded businesspeople with whom you can share your thoughts.
You may discover you are not alone in your thinking and the chamber is here to assist and support wherever we can.
Members have a wide range of business skills and knowledge and can provide advice on any concerns, so come along to one of our many functions and meet the members of the business community and our board.
