Uniting the Chamber movement in NSW: Business NSW Alliance Program
The Business NSW Alliance Program has been developed to strengthen the relationship between the Business NSW and the Local Chambers of Commerce within NSW.
This program represents a significant opportunity to unite the Chamber movement and provide members of the Local Chamber access to benefits of the Business NSW at no additional cost.
The objectives and benefits of the program are:
- Foster and develop a co-operative, non-competitive relationship between the NSW Business Chamber and the Local Chamber movement by offering Local Chambers a limited Business NSWmembership for their members. This dual membership arrangement strengthens the value proposition of the Local Chamber membership and removes the concerns around competition for membership.
- Access to advice, tools, products and services from the Business NSW to help your members business and assist the Local Chamber to grow and retain its membership base.
Create one voice for business in NSW and the Business NSW Alliance movement to represent business interests at a local, regional, state and federal level. This will be achieved through Local Chamber engagement with us at our policy forums, information on media releases, engagement with Relationship Managers.
