Last month was our AGM. We welcomed 2 new members and 2 guests and in total, we had 50 registered members at the meeting - an excellent rollout for the AGM. The take a card and contact a member program has been producing some great results, and the business card draws were won by Wendy Belham, Allied Immigration Services and Ross Pickering from Samford Garage (bring a guest).

At this point in time we would like to give a special thanks to Kelly Whilock for all of her support over the last 12 months. Kelly has difficulties getting to events, yet has been a willing helper to a number of Executive Members and committees. The success of The Hills and Districts Chamber of Commerce lies not in the fees, it lies in engaged members. For this very reason, I ask you to participate in any small way and renew your registration as soon as possible. Leonard
