Glenn Creecy, the newly elected president of Campbelltown chamber of commerce, is not fazed when told there are local businesses owners who think the organisation could be doing a better job.
“I say to them get involved, come to the meetings and have your say about the chamber,’’ is his response to the critics.
Creecy, who runs his own pest control business, has taken over the reins of the chamber from Rick Fitzpatrick, who served three years as president.
With long serving board members such as Anne Parnham and Rob Lowe also stepping aside this year, it means Glenn Creecy is leading virtually a brand new board.
“That will be the key, a whole new board that will work together for the benefit of the members,’’ says Creecy.
The president says some things may change but the main focus of the chamber will not.
“The main thing is to provide great value for our members.
“We will do that through effective networking meetings and having great speakers over the next 12 months.
“Everything we will do will be off the back of focusing on our members,’’ he said.
“We want to provide a regular platform where business people can be with each other and can network.’’
The Campbelltown Chamber of Commerce executive for 2017-18 is made up of president Glenn Creecy, vice president Wendy White, treasurer Ian Fulton, secretary Tess Danjoux, events Polly Grundy, membership Phil Clifford, sponsorship Rolf Fuchs and marketing Tamlyn Van Zyst.
Creecy says the newly elected board was a strong one, made up of local business people from a variety of backgrounds.
“One of the things we are determined to do is keep bringing great speakers to the area that businesses can really get something from.
“So if you’re a business in the Campbelltown Macarthur area and want to grow or even network with other like minded businesses, join the Campbelltown Chamber of Commerce.’’
