Executive Committee

The 2019 – 2020 Atherton Tablelands Chamber of Commerce committee are dedicated to assisting local small business.  We have included photos of these hard working volunteers with some of their family and loved ones, a reminder that they too have businesses and family to take care of, but are willingly offering their time to assist your small business.

While COVID-19 has put a stop to many of the projects that were being planned, the committee have rolled up their sleeves to offer support to small business through these trying times.

The 2020 AGM has been postponed for 6 months, the new date of the AGM will be posted to our Facebook page and sent out in our Enews.
