THREE INTO ONE FOR CHAMBERS

THREE INTO ONE FOR CHAMBERS

THREE Gold Coast Chambers of Commerce will be amalgamated to form a super chamber in 2012 following a unanimous vote by members of Surfers Paradise-Broadbeach, Central and Nerang.

Central Gold Coast Chamber of Commerce president Jason Deacon, says the deal will bolster business lobbying power.

"The proposed merger would see 46 per cent of the city’s businesses being represented by the one chamber, creating a very strong and financially viable chamber of commerce. This will in turn give

all the chambers of commerce through the Gold Coast Combined Chamber of Commerce (GCCCC) a stronger voice to local, state and federal governments on a range of issues," he says.

It is believed that Deacon will assume presidency of the new super chamber, while Surfers Paradise-Broadbeach Chamber of Commerce president Lucy Cole will become vice-president.
