Rainbow Beach held their monthly chamber meeting on the third Tuesday in June and it was encouraging to see so many established and new businesses keen to be involved.
Special guests on the night were Mayor Glen Hartwig, Division 1 Councillor and Tourism Portfolio holder Cr Jess Milne, plus Division 2 Councillor and Communities Portfolio holder Cr Dolly Jensen; Visit Gympie Region’s Andrew Saunders, and Southern Cross Austereo representative Keith Gillies.
The committee discussed post-Covid tourism needs for the region, proposed media campaigns, active social media campaigns including Facebook, Instagram and Tik Tok all run by volunteers of the chamber.
Membership is now only $40 for this financial year for anyone who is finding it difficult, and so a perfect time to join. There will be lots of perks in this year’s membership, including free listing on the new Visit Rainbow Beach website and free entry to the monthly workshops starting in June.
There is a membership form in this issue on page 17 which we would love you to fill out and drop into reception at the Plantation Resort at Rainbow.
Alternately, if you wish to be notified and involved in the business community and haven’t received a reminder, or are a new member wanting to join, please contact the chamber for membership by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
We are looking for all business owners to become involved in the chamber and would love to see you at the next meeting, the AGM, which is being held at the Community Hall on Tuesday July 21 at 5pm for 5.30pm.
If you want someone to represent you at the meeting, your business must be a financial member and you then nominate them formally, on paper, to represent you. You can have one voting member per business.
