President’s Christmas Message
Well what a year we have seen in our IDCCIT. There has been changes as you are well aware and there has been many tasks completed that may not have been communicated. Things that “just happen” behind the scenes.
Nevertheless, it has been a year of change for the better, and we as a team and business community are better off for what has been achieved.
We now have a home, financial and physical assets, a solid and diverse membership base, admin manager, and we have listened to some great speakers on interesting and appropriate topics, and we have just completed our very successful SER.
More importantly, you as members have received open communications through our Facebook, Email and Webpages, and have been exposed to Print Media and Radio time. This has been planned in a constant and consistent manner which was one of our change objectives for 2017.
2018 will see further improvement in our communications, our advertising capabilities, and our business improvement strategies. We will also be working with, and aiding in, developing a community group with the CCRC to bolster the drive to improve our “Community Spirit” within our regional communities and groups, within the Cassowary Coast region. This will flow onto setting up a yearly planner for all events within our region, and this will include the IDCCIT events. All this is so we can affectively apply for funding that will aid us in providing a higher level of event output, and greater outcomes for our respective community groups.
All the changes that have occurred to date have certainly raised the level of positivity within the Innisfail region, and we now see and hear of improved business conditions, especially in the past few months. We have a long way to go, but by working together, showing tolerance and acceptance, we can and will change the face of this region for the betterment of our members, your families and the wider community.
I take this time to thank my management committee for their continued support with our Chamber vision, my Admin Manager for her diligence and persistence in ensuring matters are dealt with, and to you the members for your ideas, meeting attendance and positive support of your Chamber.
On behalf of the IDCCIT, I extend Christmas greetings to you all and wish you and your families a safe and enjoyable period of relaxation and renewal.
See you all in 2018
President – IDCCIT
