A chamber of commerce is designed to unite businesses and professional men and women together for the purpose of promoting civic and commercial progress to build a better community.
Most importantly, the chamber represents the people who realise they can collectively accomplish more than one can do individually.
The Bairnsdale Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI) is a not-for-profit business organisation. BCCI liaises with local, state and federal governments on behalf of the Bairnsdale and district business community, and has representation at Business & Tourism East Gippsland (BTEG) association meetings, providing feedback on behalf of Chamber members.
BCCI is the local representative body for businesses to have their say on the future direction of business in Bairnsdale.
The Strategic Aims and Objectives of the Chamber are to:
- Provide strong representation and advocacy on behalf of members
- Promote Bairnsdale as a town and the businesses that are vital to the community
- Facilitate business improvement strategies for the local business community
- Create and encourage business networking opportunities
- Develop membership and structure.
