The Port Pirie Chamber of Commerce and Industry is a modern, progressive organisation dedicated to supporting local business activities and working with the community to develop the economic growth of the region.
As the “Champion of the business community” the Chamber deals with a vast range of issues ranging from day to day business opportunities/problems through to regional infrastructure and community affairs.
The Chamber is a strictly apolitical body that is financially independent and provides members with the opportunity to enhance their interests, network for profit anad improve the prosperity of the community.
When significant issues arise the lobbying power of the Chamber provides a strong, united voice to local, State and Federal governments. The business experience on the Chamber is vast, so we can also put businesses in touch with an organisation who can deal with most problems or conflicts.
One of our main objectives over the next 12 months is to increase our membership and to continue to build our profile by being active within the community.
We have recently restarted our regular “Business get Together” evenings at which the Chamber engages quality speakers. This is a great opportunity for business owners and managers to network.
We also engage sub-committees to work on relevant projects. These projects include the recent CBD shops clean up, posters in the vacant shop windows, the golf course redevelopment, the airport upgrade, Port Pirie entrances, waste management, Viterra site fence upgrade, reposition of the Port Pirie Tourism Office to National Highway One and many others.
In relation to training we have a good working relationship with Regional Development Australia, Yorke and Mid North to advertise any relevant training opportunities.
A regular newsletter updates members on what the Chamber is working on and the successes we have had.
Unfortunately we do not have any testimonials on file, but have received positive feedback from the community on initiatives we have undertaken.
