From The July Meeting

Survey Underway:

At the July executive meeting of Chamber, Mark Sheasby reported he had interviewed about 20 business owners/managers on what they think of the Chamber, what they expect from it and if they had any ideas for the future.

Mark said the survey was taking longer than expected as some interviewees wanted to chat for quite a while. He said results so far are interesting and a full report will be done when he has finished. The report will be available to all.

The Chamber’s discussed the possibility of having an open dinner for members, non members and partners. The evening would include a guest speaker, maybe two. If you have any thoughts on this please send me, or Mark, an email. Or simply call and have a chat.

President Mark and secretary Ken attended several events on behalf of Chamber during June. These included the Rergional SA Road Show, Industry leaders meeting, Tafe Open Day, a tour of the upgrade of Nyrstar operations, organised by TLAP and the launch of Andrew male’s book on the history of Nyrstar, “Bullion.”

The Chamber is also looking at a project to have visuals on the silos to promote the region. This is a huge project which would require the support of Viterra.

And what do you think of the Chamber’s name, ie Port Pirie Chamber of Commerce and Industry? Is there a better alternative? Give it some thought. Email any suggestions or give Mark a call.

Remember it is your Chamber and we will take on board any suggestions.
