Several of the city’s Chambers of Commerce have come out in support of the installation of an Instrument Landing System (ILS) at Gold Coast Airport.

Representing the business community in regions under the proposed ILS flight path, the Southern Gold Coast, Creek to Creek and Gold Coast Central Chambers of Commerce have written letters to the Airport supporting the installation of an ILS.

On Friday May 8th a number of the Creek to Creek Committee members were invited to join a group of other interested parties to discuss and workshop the concepts being considered for the development of the Palm Beach commercial zone. Ian Grace and Chris Ward joined Hilary Jacobs at this important developmental meeting.

Early in May, our new President, Hilary Jacobs and re-elected Vice President, Chris Ward, took time out to meet with Mayor Tom Tate at his offices in Southport. The meeting was a great success with the new President introducing herself and acquainting the Mayor with the issues which the Chamber sees as vital to the growth of the Creek to Creek catchment.

Recently a programme for Skilling Queenslanders was announced by the Premier. The aim to help long term unemployed and younger people to find a path to meaningful work.

Gold Coast Airport Pty Ltd and Airservices Australia are seeking feedback on the proposal to install an instrument landing system (ILS) at the airport.

Our long time Creek To Creek Chamber President Darren Mackintosh stood aside at the recent AGM following 10 years of sterling service to the Chamber and the local business community. In recognition of his dedication to the Chamber he was awarded a Life Time Membership.

Anne Stovin is the CEO of the Currumbin RSL. Anne is yet again orchestrating what is always a major event for the RSL, The Anzacs Day Dawn Service at Elephant Rock.

The main event of the April breakfast was an opportunity for our members and guests to suggest how the Chamber can improve and the issues which the Chamber should champion on behalf of the local community.

Our last breakfast highlighted that the links between heavy rail, light rail and the Airport were important to our Chamber.
