With our local Shire Councillor Mike Smart retiring from his position after 10 or so years, Augusta will miss the wonderful representation we have enjoyed over that period. Mike has fought hard for the interests of Augusta and surrounds and kept the Augusta Chamber of Commerce up to date with the issues related. With Mikes energy and efforts toward keeping funds directed for the path to the lighthouse we should see the path to Dead Finish completed by Christmas.
With the removal of the Shire Ward system of representation, Augusta will no longer have a local representative on the Shire Council, a strong Chamber will be even more important as the voice for Augusta and I encourage all business owners who are not members to join your local Chamber and have your voice heard.
The ACCI [Augusta Chamber of Commerce Incorporated] have different tiers of affordable membership with some tiers offering discounts for advertising in our Community Directory. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or Andrea on 0428 575 116 or pop along to the AGM at the Augusta Hotel on 18th October where you can pick up a prospectus and/or register interest in joining your local Chamber of Commerce.
A big Thank You to Mike Smart for his contribution and representation of Augusta.
