Calling Passionate Business Owners
Join our Committee and Create Change
With our Annual General Meeting coming up on Wednesday 15 July, we are looking for passionate people to join our committee and help us to make the Shire of Mundaring and surrounds a first class community to live and do business! The current committee has ushered in so many successful initiatives and we are excited to find more passionate business owners who can continue bringing awesome ideas to the group! Click here to find out the role of the committee, please consider this carefully as the success of the committee depends on the full commitment of every committee member.
At first glance, we wouldn’t blame you for thinking the reason for joining the Chamber’s committee is that we need committee members….. and in practical terms this is true because for the Chamber to exist, we do need committee members. However, looking at it from a different perspective, if you join the committee it could lead to an amazing experience where you can grow professionally as you share expertise and gain knowledge with fellow business owners.
So, what is the Mundaring Chamber of Commerce’s Committee all about?
Every incorporated association has a select group of people who are tasked to manage the organisation and ensure that everything is running smoothly. We are no different. We function in much the same way as a Board does on a company.
In a nutshell, the Chamber Committee’s main roles are:
- Managing the association’s financial affairs and maintaining its financial viability
- Ensuring the association acts in accordance with its vision, mission and objectives, and
- Meeting all legal requirements.
But there’s way more to it than that. We meet on a monthly basis to get our heads together and come up with new ways to support our members, plan events, develop fundraising ideas, discuss issues facing our business community and solutions to overcome them, meet with local, state and federal politicians, grow our membership and ultimately, give local business a voice.
Our Committee is appointed by our members at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) as defined by our constitution.
Our committee is answerable to the whole organization and during the AGM our outgoing committee will provide year-end reports to showcase the accomplishments of the financial year.
If you would like to know more please contact either the Chamber President, Patrick Bertola on 0428 316 271 or our Executive Officer, Karen Mummery on 0410 932 007, or come to our July networking sundowner and AGM. There will be no pressure for you to join the committee, but it is the perfect opportunity to meet some passionate business owners from your local area. Book your ticket here: ticket to AGM.
