Ma­dle now the cham­ber pres­i­dent

Isis Town and Country - - News -

THE Childers Cham­ber of Com­merce has a new pres­i­dent.

Troy Ma­dle, of Ma­dle’s Tyre and Me­chan­i­cal, was nom­i­nated by Paul Dwyer at the Tues­day night meet­ing.

Sec­re­tary Ge­off Bas­sett said a strong show of hands sup­ported the nom­i­na­tion and saw Mr Ma­dle sworn in as the new pres­i­dent.

Mr Bas­sett said the new pres­i­dent took the reins quickly and chaired his first meet­ing on the same night.

“Troy was happy to take on the po­si­tion,” Mr Bas­sett said.

The move comes as for­mer pres­i­dent John Russo (pic­tured) stepped down from the role.

“John stepped down to al­low some­one else to have a go at it,” Mr Bas­sett said.

He said Mr Russo would re­main an ac­tive mem­ber of the com­mit­tee and take on a new role.

“Just be­cause he’s stepped down doesn’t mean he’s walk­ing away,” Mr Bas­sett said.

“He’s said he’s happy to stay on as vice-pres­i­dent.”

The Childers Cham­ber of Com­merce will next meet on Tues­day, June 24.

Mr Bas­sett said the com­mit­tee was look­ing to progress on two key items – Bring it to Childers and the Childers Streetscape.

Bring it to Childers is an ini­tia­tive of the com­mit­tee that aims to look at what is miss­ing from Childers in terms of com­merce and in­dus­try.

Sug­ges­tion boxes will be avail­able around the com­mu­nity for your feed­back.
