Bathurst Business Chamber Inc.                   

Bathurst Business Chamber Inc. previously known as The Bathurst Chamber of Commerce Inc is an inclusive, positive, results-driven group interested in the betterment of Bathurst. It's that simple, no hidden agendas! We welcome input from members. We encourage members to participate, have their say and be heard. The Chamber also enjoys a solid financial base, with a varied membership encompassing small, medium and corporate business owners. The current Executive believes that the new alliance will strengthen the role of the Chamber in the community.

The Bathurst Business Chamber Inc are now alliance partners with ABL/State Chamber. The new entity represents over 30,000 businesses in NSW, predominantly small to medium employers. This alliance has significantly widened the benefits that our members will enjoy under the new structure all for the one membership fee. The Chamber shares the philosophy of ABL/State Chamber that we champion the growth and cause of business in Bathurst in particular.

We meet regularly at the business premises of members. These Business After Hours functions have been very successful allowing our host member to showcase their business to the wider business community in a social environment. We meet also on a monthly basis with Bathurst Regional Council, bringing forward issues that are impacting on business's ability to operate.

Recent issues which the Chamber has tackled include level of crime in the CBD, supermarket trolleys, CBD signage, Mount Panorama, sewerage access charges, and the establishment of Tidy Towns. The Chamber has hosted a WorkChoices seminar and plans to hold informative evenings on how to deal with the three people you do not want to see in your business, ie people from the ATO, WorkCover and the Department of Industrial Relations.

Membership of your local Chamber will add value to your business, in particular during the uncertain period since the introduction of the Federal Government's WorkChoices legislation. Knowing help is at hand is very reassuring..

Information on meetings, our latest projects, concerns and outcomes.
