THE Covid pandemic caught up with the Home Hill Chamber of Commerce at the same time as their July meeting, as the lack of guest speakers available resulted in the meeting being cancelled.
In line with its new direction in bringing guest speakers to each of its monthly meetings held at the Home Hill Community Sports Club, the Chamber had invited a guest from the Department of Small Business in Townsville as well as two other speakers who were to cover local topics.
However, it was a case of all good planning coming to nothing as the department could not provide anyone at the last minute because of staff and covid issues and the other speakers were also not available.
However, chamber members are assured the August meeting will go ahead, as it will be the Annual General Meeting and it is hoped there will be a strong representation at the meeting starting at 5.30pm on Wednesday, August 17.
And as part of the election of officers, the Chamber is keen to see a female member put their hand up to take a role on the management committee.
There are very competent female business operators in the Home Hill business community and it would be good to see them putting their hands up to join in the running of the chamber.
Remember—our town will be the major beneficiary.
