A new industry alliance between the Broken Hill Chamber of Commerce and NSW’s peak business organisation, the NSW Business Chamber, will give members access to free training, industrial advice and discounts on expenses such as electricity and insurance.
Broken Hill Chamber of Commerce President Ann Rogers said the alliance with the NSW Business Chamber meant that local Chamber members had access to a more impressive suite of services including higher level industrial support, business advice, training and discounts on essential business services.
“Working in partnership with the NSW Business Chamber, our members will be able to access an array of services and support that will make it easier to run their businesses like never before. It increases the value of a local Chamber membership and provides free access to services which can have a direct impact on savings and successful decision making,” Ms. Rogers said.
The Alliance allows us to network with Chambers across NSW and also means that we have access to a much larger support base to lobby government on issues of significant importance to business and industry in Far West NSW,” Ms. Rogers said. The new services include:
The new services include:
- Workplace Advice Hotline – to assist members with Industrial Relations and Human resource inquiries
- A Business Hotline
- Member Benefits program – members can save up to 19% off their business energy charges or up to 15% on Small Business insurance
- Regular e-news updates regarding regional, State and federal changes
- Access to the quarterly Business Connect Magazine and to the ‘Ask Us How’ Business Guides
- Business Legal Toolkit, including download sample agreements, corporate governance guidelines and other business documents
“This is a very exciting time for the Broken Hill Chamber of Commerce as we continue to develop strategic partnerships to ensure our members receive more for their membership investment,” Ms. Rogers said.
The Central West Orana NSW Business Chamber Regional Manager, Vicki Seccombe, said the Broken Hill Chamber of Commerce would be adding the voices of its members to the 15,000 strong membership of the NSW Business Chamber.
“Working together with local chambers of commerce we are building a stronger chamber movement across NSW that will give our collective members a stronger voice with government. Business is the backbone of every community and together we will make sure we get a fair deal that supports economic growth, jobs and higher living standards,” Ms Seccombe said.
