Help shape the Chamber's future direction by taking part in the BCCI Priorities Survey 2015. The survey is open to all members until 30 July. It only takes 10 minutes to complete and all responses are anonymous. The survey seeks member views on a range of strategic issues and priorities, as well as feedback on BCCI services. Responses will be used to shape the BCCI Strategic Plan 2015-16 and to improve services in the year ahead. Please take this opportunity to have your say and help us build a stronger Chamber.

An update from the Bungendore Community and Sports Club
Guest Speaker at BCCI’s June General Meeting was Greg Nugent – President, Bungendore Community & Sports Club (BCSC). Greg explained that the Club is seeking to expand operations to include a wider range of sporting activities and community events, many of which are not readily available elsewhere. These include: offering facilities for function and event hire, live music and entertainment with specific themes (e.g. Rock and Roll Dinners), providing a venue for community education and training courses, activities and events for children and adolescents, community events such as the upcoming barbecue and cook-off, winter solstice celebration and the Bungendore Christmas festival.
The Club is seeking community support and aims to build close working ties with the Chamber and local businesses. A Steering Committee has been established and meets fortnightly. (The VP attends these meetings to give BCCI support). The Club is currently exploring grants funding and assistance from anyone with experience in developing grants submissions. Members attending fully endorsed the BCSC initiative and Members are invited to assist by any means; any Members willing to assist should contact Greg on 0421782298.
Outcomes of the BCCI General Meeting of 1 June
BCCI responded positively to Palerang Council’s formation of an Advisory Board that will contribute to the Friendly Council NSW initiative. Further discussion is underway about an appropriate Charter.
BCCI is preparing a response to Palerang Council’s Off-Street Car Park Plan. The Chamber will suggest that consultation with businesses and residents needs to be addressed and that the current design needs review, as does funding and contributions.
BCCI representatives on the S355 Town Planning Committee will be reporting key issues to each General Meeting in future. The current issue being addressed concerns town entry signage.
A survey will shortly be sent to all BCCI Members. The aim of the survey is to obtain feedback on strategic priorities that will further inform and be included in BCCI’s Strategic and Business Plan.
Nominations are currently being taken for the Bungendore Business of the Year Award. Nominations should be emailed to the BCCI Secretary: firstname.lastname@example.org.
