The part scholarship offered by the Albury Northside Chamber of Commerce to an aspiring or emerging business leader from Albury has been awarded to John Chanter. Congratulations!
John is a journalist for the Border Mail who lives in East Albury with his wife and daughters. He is excited about the opportunities to develop his confidence in approaching and engaging one-on-one with new people through the 2017-2018 Alpine Valleys Community Leadership Program.
He hopes to build a new network with people from across the region from diverse backgrounds and industries and to learn skills and techniques to successfully negotiate and debate his views about community. We look forward to sharing John’s journey and learnings throughout the program. Photo: 2017-2018 AVCLP participants at the opening retreat.
Border Trust and the Albury Northside Chamber of Commerce (ANCC) have launched their Community Investment Partnership which is
Good for Business | Good for Community.
Businesses renewing or taking up ANCC membership will now have the opportunity to support local community projects through the one-stop giving shop of Border Trust.
All businesses are approached on a daily basis for donations and this constant demand can become overwhelming and difficult to work through.
To kick start the program, the 2015 Corporate Challenge will raise funds to support projects focusing on young business leaders.
“This region has some really talented young people with incredible potential to make a difference in their chosen field”, said ANCC Business Manager, Kathie Heyman. “By tapping into this area of potential, Chamber members are providing opportunities for young people to continue to live, work or study here. We need young, vibrant people to stay in the region & we’re so happy to be able to help make this happen”.
Ms Heyman said the Chamber was proud to build on its leadership role in business through this partnership with Border Trust. “What is exciting is that we are joining with an established, well respected community foundation who knows what the needs are out there and who will work with us to ensure that our members’ donations are used in the most effective way to improve the lives of locals”.
