Chamber update - March 2016

03 Mar 2016

An exceptional evening overlooking Victoria Harbour

Over 60 chamber members and guests enjoyed watching the sun set on Victoria Harbour on Thursday, February 25. Congratulations to Tony and his team at Black Cod who provided scallops, prawns, sliders, tacos, beer, wine and sparkling mineral water.

We are grateful we had the opportunity to showcase some of our local waterway businesses and activities, MV Grower, MV Calypso Lady, SV Alexander Stewart as well as representatives from the Alma Doepel, the Enterprise and Melbourne City Marina. Also thanks to Kayak Melbourne and dragon boating.

Members really did appreciate Cr Ken Ong from the City of Melbourne giving up some of his valuable time to chat with the attendees. Some members may have spoken about what was on their mind on specific issues, but Cr Ong is a real professional – a great asset to the people of Melbourne in his current portfolio but, more importantly, he is a true friend to the Docklands.

We welcomed new members, Neil and Kerry York from NR York Plumbing, Gary Billings from Eyes on Docklands and Jeremy Nordkamp from Peppers Docklands. David Anderson was there from Nelson Alexander as well as Henry Ngo and Darcy Sudholz from Highroad Design.

Also Lucia Cardamone from Nutrimetics, Wendy from Eastern China Health and Mahamoud Fahour from the Goodlife Health Club. Nick Hill from Party Boats and Joe Speziale from Calypso Lady have also joined the chamber. All these new members have a wealth of business knowledge skills that add real tangible value to the Docklands community.  

How to recognise a chamber member?

One of the highlights of the evening was seeing Gavin Bell, one of Melbourne’s top caricaturists (bloodyfunny.com.au), drawing caricatures for each of the attendees. Next time you visit a business and you see the caricature of the owners at their premises, you will know they are chamber members.

New executive committee member

Kerry York has agreed to become an executive committee member, and brings over 25 years of business experience to the committee. Kerry and her husband Neil were recognised with a silver award in the Lord Mayor’s Commendations in 2015. All members of the committee are looking forward to working with Kerry.

Add some value to your business - Join the chamber today!

The combined quality of the business skills that members have is the best reason to join the Docklands Chamber of Commerce and connect your business to people with like minds who are actively encouraging the development of the Docklands community.
