Glasshouse Country Chamber of Commerce update

Each May, Queensland Small Business Month sets out to highlight, celebrate and support the thousands of small businesses operating across the state. Small Business Month helps business owners’ network with their peers and develop their skills. It also encourages us to get behind our favourites – retail, trades, logistics, health and others – and let them know we love your small business.
Small businesses are vital to our community. The services and products they deliver help customers, clients, and our local economy. The Glasshouse Country Chamber of Commerce celebrates small businesses year-round, but we try to amp it up a bit during May. You may have seen or heard that our networking events are growing in popularity, so I encourage you to come to one of them and see for yourself.
As a special event to celebrate Small Business Month, we are excited to announce that the chamber is joining Martin Kavanagh’s BOQ Beerwah to bring you Chief Economist Peter Munckton to Beerwah for a one-night-only presentation. Peter Munckton will be offering insights into how the new Federal Budget will impact you and your business. With rising interest rates, rapidly increasing HECS debts, and fewer capital opportunities, we are eager to hear Peter’s perceptions. Tickets for this event are heavily discounted so are strictly limited. For more information go to our website
There have been some big changes within the chamber committee recently. We said sad farewells to Judy Tomlinson and Stephanie Shipman, and then gladly welcomed shop owner Billie Glover (That Little Dress Shop), creative director Naomi Pearce (Crest Marketing), solicitor Mia Mouland-Vail (Spire Law), and relationship coach Sharon Chapman. We have quite a diverse skill set in our committee which means creating a wider range of benefits and strategies to help our region’s businesses and the wider community. We look forward to offering even more exciting opportunities. Follow us on social media for updates.
