Chamber Update - Dec 18 - Jan 19

05 Dec 2018

Run 4 The Kids

We are so excited this event is coming to Docklands.

Of course, it’s been running through The District since its inception, but now that we will be hosting the start and the finish, we can hardly contain our excitement.

It is estimated it will bring 45,000 people into Docklands. That’s great news for all our traders and having run the event on many occasions I know that both the athletes and supporters will be keen to sit down for a meal and a cold drink afterwards.

Carols at The District

For the first time ever, we are thrilled to announce a night of carols at The District, underneath Melbourne’s largest and brightest star! All event proceeds will go to charity partner, Kids Under Cover, helping prevent youth homelessness. The Docklands Chamber of Commerce is a proud sponsor and supporter of this new event.

So, come along for an evening of festive fun, with live music featuring a Christmas choir, solo performance by Maya, performances by Shades and House of Horns – plenty of fun the whole family can enjoy and, of course, the big man in the red suit will be there to listen to all the boy and girls.

The evening will close with a spectacular firework display and best of all you will have first class views from the stage!

When: Wednesday, December 21 from 7pm.

Where: Underneath the Melbourne Star at The District Docklands.

Annual general meeting

The DCC annual general meeting was held on Tuesday, November 13. This past year has seen the chamber grow to a record size and, with that success, it was an easy choice for the members in attendance to re-elect Johanna Maxwell as president.

Newcomer to the executive committee, Daniel Hibberd of Quest hotel, has taken on the role of vice-president. A full executive committee was elected on the night that will ensure the pro-active work of the chamber continues.

“Red Shirt” volunteers

The City of Melbourne “Red Shirts” are everyone’s go-to people when we need advice.

The Docklands Chamber of Commerce hosted 130 of the volunteers for brunch and a forum on what is available in Docklands. Several of our members presented as well. We are the conduit between the city and Docklands and were very proud to host this annual event at the beautiful Maia function room at Central Pier.
