Recap - Grand Final Charity Lunch 
On Wednesday 28 September, we held our annual Grand Final Charity Lunch.
For another year running, this event was sold out – and we had just over 200 guests in attendance for a great day of fun and fundraising, with the proceeds from this year’s lunch going to the Make A Wish Foundation and the Caroline Chisholm Education Foundation. Our guests also were entertained with stories from our guest speaker, Chris Judd. He shared stories of his illustrious career on the field, as well as his experiences after retiring from football.
The Executive Committee are very pleased to announce that this year's Grand Final Charity lunch has raised a whopping $12,000 to be donated to our two charities. We had such an overwhelming response to the Live and Silent Auctions on the day, not to mention the even deeper pockets for the raffle and Dandy Chamber Lotto.

Thank you to everyone that came along to the event and for those who didn't but supported us by donating auction items.
Finally, a huge thank you goes to this year's sponsors – AW Bell, Dandenong Journal, Grenda Corp, Macpherson Kelley Lawyers, RJ Sanderson & Associates and Surdex Steel

Recap - October Greater Dandenong Chamber Awards Business Breakfast 
Wednesday 12 October saw over 90 guests come along for our final Greater Dandenong Chamber Business Awards Breakfast! 
A very busy event saw one Youth Enterprise nominees presented, three business nominees, as well as a very energetic guest speaker – Nathanial Bibby. All our awards events this year have been hosted by Sjaak Kusters so the audience have had a chance to get to know him, and Chamber President, Paul Broom spoke to the crowd about the awards this year, and also launched our final Awards Presentation Night.

Congratulations to our Youth Enterprise Nominees – Kyle Hillbrich, who sounds like he will have very bright future in his chosen career! Congratulations also goes to our three business nominees – Cabrini Linen Service, Murray Agricultural Equipment and Quantum Recycling Solutions. Each of these businesses are very worth nominees in their categories and we wish them well at the final award presentation event in November.

Finally, we were all ready to learn all about LinkedIn and social media with our guest speaker – Nathanial Bibby. I think that all our guests walked away with quite a few new pieces of information and strategies to implement within their businesses own social media outlets. Nathanial stressed the point that businesses need to have a strong social media presence to assist in the growth of their businesses.

New Gold Member Profile -  Assembly Point 

Recently opened in Casey Corporate Centre, Narre Warren, Assembly Point offers a top class, modern meeting room aimed at businesses which recognise that the smart alternative to using (or perhaps under-using) precious office space for meetings is to hire a facility as and when they need it.
