Busi­ness sup­port

Fremantle Gazette - - NEWS -

SHOW­ING small busi­ness own­ers they are not alone is a key goal be­hind the Melville and Cock­burn Cham­ber of Com­merce (MCCC).

The or­gan­i­sa­tion aims to en­cour­age and de­velop growth among Melville and Cock­burn small busi­nesses through ad­vo­cacy, pro­mo­tions, events and net­work­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties.

MCCC pres­i­dent Tony Ro­mano said some of its most im­por­tant work was pro­vid­ing busi­ness own­ers with a chance to net­work and speak to oth­ers ex­pe­ri­enc­ing the same ups and downs.

“Or­gan­i­sa­tions like the MCCC are the only ve­hi­cle or out­let small busi­ness own­ers have to in­ter­act with other small busi­ness own­ers through func­tions and events,” he said.

“Small busi­ness own­ers, es­pe­cially one or twop­er­son op­er­a­tions, can be fairly lonely but we have a monthly so­cial get-to­gether where we get 80 to 100 peo­ple along, which gives them the op­por­tu­nity to talk to some­one go­ing through the same ex­pe­ri­ences in busi­ness.”

He said 2018 had been a good year for the MCCC, which now had close to 200 mem­bers, and it was look­ing for­ward to the fu­ture.

“Fi­nan­cially speak­ing we’re in much bet­ter shape; over­all I think it’s been a pos­i­tive year for the Cham­ber,” he said.

“The plans are for us to con­tinue to grow.”
