Chamber update - August 2015

29 Jul 2015

Chamber funding confirmed

Congratulations to all committee members and Chamber of Commerce members.  The City of Melbourne has confirmed that the Docklands Chamber of Commerce will receive funding under the Precincts Program for 2015-2016.  

This funding is the foundation for your Chamber of Commerce and allows us to participate in events, support programs, training offers and network events throughout the next financial year.  This also allows the membership fees to remain at a level that is affordable for all business operators within the Docklands Precinct.

The Docklands Chamber of Commerce currently has two vacant positions within the executive and is looking for insightful, passionate members to hold their hand up to join. You would work with us to shape and foster the Docklands business environment through leadership, advocacy, co-ordination and promotion of Docklands’ business interests.

You would be looking for commitment of at least one to two hours per week, attendance at the monthly executive meeting, chamber functions and support for programs such as Seniors Festival and Australia Day.  

If this excites you and you are passionate about Docklands thriving please contact Johanna Maxwell – (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or Stefanie Schultz – (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) for further information.

As a business owner/operator within Docklands are you ready to participate in the festivities in August?

Friday night fireworks in Docklands are again attracting visitors to the delights of Docklands, so make sure you have your lights on and are ready to welcome the additional visitors.  The City of Melbourne continues to support Docklands through the delivery of these spectacular fireworks and brings a smile to the face of all who sit back and enjoy the show.  Make sure you share this information with your friends and encourage them to make the trip to Docklands. The fireworks are at 7.30pm every Friday in August.
Friday, August 7 to Sunday, August 9 will see Docklands welcome chocolate lovers.  

Melt Away is Melbourne’s most tasteful chocolate event ever.  Supported by your Chamber of Commerce this is another opportunity for our business community to showcase our offerings to the many visitors.  
Enjoy the delights of chocolate-inspired drinks, chocoholic tours, tasting bars, children’s entertainment and the chocolate fair at NewQuay Piazza, workshops and master classes at the Library at the Dock.  More information available at http://www.meltawaymelbourne.com

Celebrate Melbourne Day and Blessing of the Fleet by Father Bob on August 30. This celebration will see the waterways of Docklands come alive with a flotilla of vessels, flares, whistles, pipe bands and a display of water cannons from emergency service vessels.

Ferry services will again give visitors to Docklands an opportunity to enjoy the waterways. See the schooner Enterprize perform a re-enactment of the first landing in period costume. Bands, vans and local venues will bedazzle Docklands.  

Discover Docklands as part of the Seniors Festival 2015.

The Docklands Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with Victorian Seniors Festival and the City of Melbourne, are proud to deliver a two-day Seniors Festival on October 10 and 11 between 11.30am and 5.00pm.

A free ferry service for Seniors Card holders will be provided, with two ferries making the trip across Victoria Harbour linking Victoria Harbour Promenade to NewQuay and Harbour Town.  The Library at the Dock will be hosting activities throughout the week prior.  Life Activities Club Victoria will be running orienteering and the Spiegletent will be hosting an afternoon of music and dance.  Cruise the waters on board the Lady Cutler and enjoy high tea.  Visit the Alma Doepel and discover the wonders of the refurbishment of this magnificent vessel.  Shop at Harbour Town and visit the Mission to Seafarers.  

Your Chamber of Commerce will be marketing this great event through the Seniors Festival program guide – with 250,000 copies being distributed through Coles supermarkets and social media, with assistance from Destination Docklands for further marketing.  

Is your business keen to be involved in the excitement of this weekend?  Docklands is an Age-Friendly Precinct and this program runs throughout the year and is sponsored by your Chamber of Commerce.
