The 72ndAnnual General Meeting (AGM) of the Gosford Erina & Coastal Chamber of Commerce and Industry was held on the 26th November 2019. For 72 years Gosford has created an active Business Chamber to be the voice for local business and the role of the Chamber will continue, now under the new name of Gosford Erina Business Chamber (GEBC).
The AGM also saw the return of the current board who have worked extensively over the past 2 years to rebuild the Chamber presence and expand its relevance to the business community.
Building confidence and expanding the areas of influence has been a key objective of the GEBC's executive teamled by Rod Dever of APM Employment.
As a sign of confidence, Mr Dever has been re-elected to lead the Chamber for another year. Having been associated with Chambers for more than 18 years locally where he is the Immediate Past President of the NSW Business Chamber's Regional Advisory Council and a voice for the Central Coast on the NSW State Business Council in Sydney, Mr Dever will now service his 7th year over two separate terms as the leader of the local chamber operations.
"The membership has voted to return the Directors and supported two new additions to the Board to assist the Chamber in its leadership growth plans" Mr Dever said.
"The Directors are grateful for the business support extended which is viewed as a sign of confidence that we are making the right changes and offering services and information relevant and current for local business", Rod added.
Member engagement of the Chamber is great with interest from all areas of business influence keen to engage and work with the Chamber.
The Chambers new leadership executive comprises of Vice President Petrina Waddell, Treasurer David Evers and Directors; Edgar Adams, Tim Gunasinghe, Michael Trimblett, Darren Fisher, Anna Cruickshank and two new Board Directors Gabby Bowles,who brings a wealth of local government and business development knowledge and Lois Marshall of MTA, who has a great understanding of the needs of small and micro business operations.
