Noosa Chamber of Commerce has been awarded a $5000 grant by the Department of Employment, Small Business and Training to offer a Wellness Program for Noosa Chamber members, chamber president Ralph Rogers told attendees at the chamber’s May Coffee Catch Up networking event.
The training aims to help participants learn ways to enhance workplace psychological safety and resilience in order to optimise performance, productivity and client interactions. Applications to attend will be open on our website as soon as the program is ready to go.
Mr Rogers thanked the Noosa Boathouse for sponsoring the Coffee Catchup which saw more than 50 businesses attend. He also welcomed two new sponsors – MIQ Private Wealth and Harlequin Blinds & Security.
“Sponsorships assist in funding the support Noosa Chamber offers for its members,” he said.
“Our next event is a Noosa Chamber breakfast on 25 May where Troy Raemond of MIQ Private Wealth will be the keynote speaker, providing insights into investment megatrends and impacts on small businesses. Members and guests will be able to book online on the Chamber’s website.”
Mr Rogers stressed that Noosa Chamber was there for its members and the business community.
“Our job is to assist our members in growing their businesses. One of the ways we are doing that is via the chamber’s website member directory, where both members and the public can search for quality businesses to meet their needs.”
“The new Noosa Chamber website and business system, which was partly funded by a Noosa Council grant, provide comprehensive information about Noosa Chamber’s many activities and services and allows online transactions including membership and booking for events. This increased accessibility is a great step forward for the Chamber, which has seen a 25 per cent increase of its membership in the last few months,” he said.
“We thank Noosa Council, Mayor Clare Stewart and the council economic development team for the council grant which has allowed us to engage and procure resources to better manage Chamber operations.
“We welcome new members and it’s easy to join. Just go to our website.“
