Sharing the load for business excellence awards

MACLEAN and Yamba chambers of commerce are supporting The Daily Examiner Clarence Valley Business Excellence Awards by co-sponsoring the Trade, Industry and Manufacturing category.

Yamba and District Chamber of Commerce president Bev Mansfield said people forget it's a great opportunity for a business to look at themselves and review how they are doing things.

The Yamba and District Chamber of Commerce continues to support a number of local events, the most recent being the Edible Yamba gardens project. It is also lending support to new events Yamba Triathlon Festival in October and a Writ- ers Festival in 2014. The first Yamba networking night will be held on September 18 at Caperberry Cafe. Anyone can attend but please RSVP for catering to info@yambansw.com.au.

The recent and long-running disruptions to local traffic due to the McFarlane Bridge repairs will soon be over.

To celebrate, Maclean Chamber of Commerce is supporting a Back to Maclean campaign on September 14, when many Maclean shops will offer special discounts for the day.

John Riggall, president of the Maclean Chamber of Commerce, said being a member has many benefits such as information and mentoring on laws and regula- tions like Fair Work Australia pay awards and other issues of compliance.

"Some local businesses have taken advantage of an arrangement brokered by NSW Business Chamber for cheaper electricity for their business and are very pleased with the outcome," he said.

Maclean and Yamba chambers of commerce are proud to sponsor the 2013 Daily Examiner Clarence Valley Business Excellence Awards.
