I am writing to advise that Geoff Tosio has decided for personal reasons to stand down from both the role of President of the Bellingen Chamber of Commerce and as a member of the Board. He has been a member of the Board for four years and took on the role of president this year. He has worked hard to represent the interests of the members of the Chamber and we will all miss him.
I have agreed to take on the role of President in an acting capacity until our AGM at the end of the year, when Chamber members will have the opportunity to vote for a permanent President. There are no other changes to office holders or members of the board.
I know that I am a new face, having joined the Board in December last year. My husband, James, and I moved to Bellingen five years ago and took over the Bellingen Kitchen Shop two years ago; we have been delighted to become a part of the Bellingen community. Being involved in the work of the Chamber of Commerce enables me to contribute to the whole business community to ensure that we can all continue to grow and thrive into the future.
In the meantime, I will do everything I can to ensure that this change in our team does not impact on our ability to continue to work as we have before to represent our members’ interests and to work closely with our key stakeholders.
President, Bellingen Chamber of Commerce
