Karen Fleischer, president Bairnsdale Chamber of Commerce and Industry, encourages the Bairnsdale and Industry community to head along to the chamber’s networking night on May 1 at Mr D Food and Coffee starting at 6pm.

Guest speaker will be Anthony Basford, chief executive officer of East Gippsland Shire Council.

“The chamber’s aim is to promote ‘Shop Local’ focus for business and industry,”
Karen said.

“Come and hear what Bairnsdale Chamber of Commerce and Industry has planned to support local business and industry in 2019. You will hear about BCCI’s recent and successful initiative, Love Where You Live and Shop Local and future proposals.

“It is an exciting time for the chamber. We are rebuilding the approach to being a voice for our local community.

“We have developed a 2019 Work Plan. One of the 2019 initiatives includes a comedy festival which is being supported by the East Gippsland Shire Council.”

David Schmidt and Charlie Dickinson, of Mr D Food and Coffee, look forward to hosting the networking night.

Businesses and industries do not have to be a BCCI member to attend, however for catering purposes registrations are essential.

“We also have David Mosele, from Federation Training, who will be there to say hi to businesses,” Karen said. Call Mr D Food and Coffee to register by Friday, April 26.
