New chamber to meet tonight
THE newly formed Airlie Beach Chamber of Commerce has called a public meeting to be held tonight (Thursday).
The meeting will be held at the Airlie Beach Hotel at 6pm for a 6.30pm start.
The Whitsunday Chamber of Commerce folded several years ago but a group of local business people met in May this year to re-form the chamber.
It is expected to be known as the Airlie Beach Chamber of Commerce.
In May, an interim management committee was formed and the members have been meeting regularly since then.
At tonight’s meeting, they will give an update on progress so far and will welcome any suggestions from the community.
The interim management committee consists of Cameron MacRae (treasurer), Jo Sweeney (secretary), Heidi Ward (president) and Allan Milostic, Stacy Harvey, Philip Larsson, Wendy Eriksson and Kellie Brookes.
