Chamber Launches New Initiative

The Whitsunday Coast Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce its Vision for the Whitsunday initiative.

Employing a series of workshop style focus groups, the Whitsunday Coast Chamber of Commerce are working to better futureproof their economic projection for the Whitsundays, a projection that is informed by the region’s trades, small business, commerce, and industry.  

Chamber President Allan Milostic urges both members and the broader business community to submit their ideas and concerns for consideration.

“Having a united, clear vision of the future designed by business for business is urgently needed. “What follows is relevant advocacy, representing our vision and influencing decisions across all levels of government,” Allan said.

“Coordinated advocacy is highly valued by all levels of government, and the Chamber will ensure that Proserpine and the Whitsunday coastal business centres have a strong voice in the development of this pivotal project.”

With three key pillars of engagement, the official findings of this initiative will be shared at the Chamber’s inaugural Whitsunday Business Conference in May 2024.

Businessowners and individuals are encouraged to formally submit their options to better the region to the Chamber, complete a quick survey, both of which close in December, and join a series of focus groups, all occurring throughout September and October.
