Mur’bah Cham­ber wins top award

Tweed Daily News - - NEWS -

THE Mur­willum­bah Cham­ber of Com­merce’s hard work dur­ing the March floods has been recog­nised with the group win­ning the lo­cal cham­ber of com­merce award at the 2017 North­ern Rivers Busi­ness Awards.

Cham­ber pres­i­dent Ilze Jaun­berzins said the recog­ni­tion meant a lot to the board, which formed in Fe­bru­ary. “It recog­nises the amaz­ing hard work of our board since Fe­bru­ary,” she said. “When the new board came to­gether, we had key pri­or­i­ties to ad­dress in terms of gov­er­nance.”

Ms Jaun­berzins said the cham­ber was look­ing for­ward to en­gag­ing with other busi­ness cham­bers and ex­plor­ing dif­fer­ent col­lab­o­ra­tion projects.

“We want to cre­ate a strate­gic mesh, a net­work for in­ter­sect­ing the larger busi­nesses with the smaller busi­nesses,” she said.

“We’re want­ing to strengthen our al­liances with our col­leagues. We also thank the Tweed Cham­ber who helped our flood af­fected busi­ness with a $5,000 do­na­tion.”

The cham­ber will at­tend the state fi­nals in Syd­ney on Friday, Novem­ber 17.
