Umvoti Chamber of Commerce meeting

2015-04-30 13:58

A REMINDER to businesses, big and small, that a meeting to launch the Umvoti Chamber of Commerce will take place on Wednesday 15 April at 5.15pm in the Greytown Town Hall.

The district has been without a representative business organisation for several years and it is vital that organised business once again has a voice to raise matters with the powers that be.

The main purpose of a chamber of commerce is to further the business interests of the community, to use its influence to correct municipal national problems which might be impeding business interests, and members throughout the country consider that a chamber’s ability to influence government and elected officials is one of its most important functions.

An important aspect of membership of a chamber is networking to promote business activity and exchanges and to create a pro-business environment.

Umvoti residents are concerned at the pending water crisis from a short-term and long-term point of view. This could have a negative impact on the growth of business in Umvoti.

It is vital that Umvoti sets up an active and positive Chamber of Commerce to build and promote Umvoti – so make sure, if you are in business, that you attend this important meeting
