Big Breakfast Committee
We do this through organising and coordinating the annual Big Breakfast – the Chamber’s major fundraising event.
The funds raised are distributed to deserving groups within the local community. These groups may be youth support, aged citizens or school students. The decision on which group is to receive funds is made by the Chamber members.
During the last three years, the Committee has donated approximately $20,000 to the following organisations and individuals:
- Hills PCYC
- local School chaplaincy programs
- Picabeen Community Association
- Sandy Hobley – Embracing Dyslexia
Benefits for our Chamber generated from the Big Breakfast include:
Raised profile – publicising and promoting the Big Breakfast raises the Chamber’s profile in the local community.
Increased membership – The event attracts employers and business owners, their clients and customers who would not normally attend monthly Chamber meetings.
Getting to know your Chamber more – the committee is a great vehicle for members to work and socialise with other members outside of monthly Chamber meetings.
Benefits of being in the Committee – I have found that working with Chamber members from different business backgrounds and with different business skills has enriched my understanding of the great work the Chamber carries out. All members donate their time and energy for the benefit of the Committee, and I look forward to my meetings and the energy that they generate. Discussion and resolution of issues provides me with a framework for debate which can translate to my business.
Why our committee is the best one to join – Thoughts from a member – My fellow Committee members have been welcoming, supportive and encouraging. The biggest benefit is belonging to a great group of like-minded people from differing business backgrounds working for a common goal. Everyone is encouraged to voice their opinion, and all opinions are treated with respect. This in part is due to the direction of the chairperson. I have been a member for 2 years and would recommend to everyone to become involved.
