Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY BUSINESS -

A NEW era is un­der­way for the Air­lie Beach Cham­ber of Com­merce with its com­mit­tee of eight peo­ple fi­nalised this week.

Judy Porter from the Re­serve Group has taken on the role of se­cre­atry and Paul Burke from the Leader Group has taken on the role of trea­surer.

Join­ing new pres­i­dent Tony Lau­rent (Air­lieBeach.com) is vice-pres­di­ent Mark Beale (Ray White Whit­sun­day).

Other com­mit­tee mem­bers are Philip Larsson (Air­lie Beach Apart­ments), Me­gan Tay­lor (Kapow In­ter­ac­tive), Jimmy Dun­can ( WS Group) and John Harker (RPS Group).

Vice-pres­i­dent Mark Beale said this was a “very di­verse group”.

“And a fresh new com­mit­tee means fresh new ideas. To have eight peo­ple on the com­mit­tee will give the Cham­ber a new lease of life,” he said.

Cham­ber pres­i­dent Tony Lau­rent said the new com­mit­tee held its first meet­ing on Tues­day af­ter­noon which he de­scribed as ex­tremely pos­i­tive.

He said the com­mit­tee would now take time to lis­ten to the lo­cal busi­ness com­mu­nity about what they wanted from the or­gan­i­sa­tion.

“I want them to tell me what they think the role of the Cham­ber should be and how we can help and sup­port them,” he said.
