A NETWORKING event will be held at the Greytown Country Club at 5 pm for 5.30 pm on Thursday, September 19 to nominate and elect a small voluntary committee to begin the process of establishing a Chamber of Business in Umvoti. Leaders from the business fraternity in Umvoti have been meeting with the Umvoti Municipality since 2016 via a forum known as the KwaZulu-Natal Growth Coalition. At a recent meeting of this group of businesspeople, it was agreed that a formal Chamber of Business in Umvoti would be the ideal structure to represent business and liaise with community stakeholders, including the local and district municipalities for the upliftment of Umvoti. Business people of Umvoti are invited to attend this event where a small, voluntary committee will be elected to represent local business to draft an initial constitution, set objectives and begin the work of forming the Chamber. This event is also a rare opportunity for Umvoti businesses to socialise and network on an informal basis.RSVP to Elzare Slatter at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 033 413 1070. Enquiries to Ashley Cotterrell (082 415 0525) or Mdu Madonsela (084 777 760). Snacks will be provided, cash bar available. — Supplied.
