Successful Networking Night


The Chamber recently held a very successful networking evening at the Port Pirie Golf Club.

More than 50 people, representing a strong cross section of the business community, heard guest speakers, Basil DeVilliers of Nyrstar and Geoff Brock, MP.

Mr DeVilliers spoke on the $520m. Transformation Project and said he believed it would be up and running late 2016. When in full operation it will be one of the company’s most profitable operations.

Mr Brock outlined his new roles in parliament (Minister for Local Government and Regional Development) and what he hoped to achieve for regional SA.

President Mark Hanlon said he was delighted with the response and that Chamber will organise similar presentations this year.

“While these nights are generally open to all, I do urge all members of the business community to join the Chamber. The stronger we are, the more we can achieve,” Mr Hanlon said.

Membership details are available on this site, or more information will be provided by Mr Hanlon, or secretary, Ken Jeffrey.

Mr Hanlon also praised the organisers of the recent Business Awards night.

“About 180 attended and it was an exceptional evening with 30 finalists in the various categories. I congratulate all winners on behalf of the Chamber and the Chamber was delighted to be one of the major sponsors,” Mr Hanlon said.
