Last Wednesday the Brisbane Southside Chamber of Commerce held another successful Mini Business Expo. Unfortunately because of the sitting week I wasn’t able to be there, but my wonderful team was able to represent me there.

The Expo gave the Chamber’s members the opportunity to meet and network with other business owners as well as local organisations and government representatives. It’s yet another event from Southside Chamber of Commerce helping support and grow businesses in Brisbane’s southside.

The Chamber committee is made up of amazing volunteers. I have to commend them for the great work they do helping small businesses in the area grow. In particular I have to commend their President Kathleen Lewis and Vice President Kim Peries who are such strong advocates for the Chamber’s members.

I’m glad to support the business events the Chamber holds throughout the year. I’d encourage local southside businesses to sign up to become a member for the support and network opportunities they provide.

I’m a proud member of Southside Chamber of Commerce myself. And I’m proud to be part of a government that has passed legislation delivering company tax relief for over 15,000 businesses in Bonner, five years sooner, as well as extended the $20,000 instant asset write off for another year.
