WHY JOIN CHAMBER?
As a member-based, not-for-profit organisation, Chamber is directed by the needs of our members. While we advocate for all businesses in the region, our members are the key focus when deciding where Chamber resources are best used. As well as access to exclusive benefits, Chamber membership demonstrates public support for Mackay's business and local communities.
Chamber advocates on behalf of members, taking their issues and priorities direct to the relevant government agencies as well as the media to continually work towards providing real outcomes to benefit our region.
Marketing resources available to members include a listing in our online member directory, promotion through our email newsletters and Facebook page and the opportunity to raise the profile of your business when attending our events.
Support our region
By being part of Chamber, you are connecting your business with an organisation whose goal is improving our region and advocating for issues that are relevant to the community, both socially and economically.
Chamber is often the first point of contact for business-related events and opportunities – both locally and outside the region. Connecting with Chamber ensures your business is kept informed about the latest news, events and initiatives.
Building relationships is essential to any successful business operation. Chamber gives members a platform to genuinely connect and grow relationships with potential and current clients, suppliers and collaborators.
