  Membership Renewal  


Membership-Booking Form 2015

Dear Members,

How quickly has half the year gone for all of us! However so much has been achieved in this time.

Croydon Park Business Chamber (CPBC) has new businesses wanting to join our Chamber which is very good for our existing Members as the networking supply expands as does the number of local businesses we can patronise. Take a look at the Website to see a full list and for the benefits of being involved.

The Chamber has outsourced its Events this year, set up a Chamber Youth Committee and continues its support of its first Social Enterprise.

Long standing Board Member Silvana Franze and sister Grace Franze have set up Franze Events Management which organised a Thank You night for the Volunteers and Sponsors of the “Experience Croydon Park! A Festival Like No Other” in May this year. Close to 80 attended on the night!

Following this inaugural event, they organised a Business Workshop by Allen Roberts of StrategyAudit called “Have you started Planning your Business Cashflow Yet?”. It was a night of useful information, networking and great food provided by Venue and Catering Sponsor La Bocca Deli Cafe, which is also a Member of CPBC. A big thank you to Member and Sponsor DeMarco Financial Solutions. Those that attended said they would attend future business related events.

The Croydon Park Youth Committee (CPYC) has come together as a group of five after individually volunteering at the CP Festival 2014, where they had lots of fun. Joining as a team they asked the question: ” What can I do to make a difference in my Community and beyond?”.Their first event, a Movie Night was a great success, with the venue filled to capacity with 70 guests!

The fabulous five dressed the part in outfits of cheeky Minions and propped the room at the Aussie Rules Club to look like the perfect movie theatre. Former owner of CP Post Office, Keith Isaacs ensured the set up of the movie screen was clear and perfect and provided an excellent sound system to go with it. Take a look at the Chamber’s Facebook page for photos www.facebook.com/CroydonParkBusinessChamber

Thanks to all the Sponsors who made the Movie Night possible, because without your help it would not have been so successful!

One of the next projects that CPYC has in mind is to design a “Discover Croydon Park Campaign”. Stay tuned and ask us how to get involved.

The Inner West Social Enterprise continues to support the Chamber through projects and grants to develop sustainable programs in partnership with local government, businesses, to improve local, social, economic and environmental outcomes. The current projects include:
. Work Readiness Activity: an early intervention approach to youth unemployment.
. A Child Friendly Business Register.
. No Interest Loans Program.

One of the important updates for Croydon Park is the continuous meetings CPBC has with the local Councils, to beautify the area for the Community and the Businesses. Our recent meeting with Mayor John Faker was to showcase the Town Centre with a Clock and the possible fountain and surrounding seats so that the Community can relax and have a chat. This area may also include a Memorial for our Anzacs. We would appreciate your feedback on this point to help us with the final outcome of achieving this look for Croydon Park.

With what has been achieved so far this year, and provided to both the community and businesses, please take a moment to read through the Benefits of being part of our proactive Chamber (attached here). Choose which Member Level suits your business and why not consider upgrading to a higher level this year? In comparison to many other advertising platforms, this is a very cost effective way of getting your business name out to new customers within the Inner West. We currently have Members from Ashfield, Ashbury, Enfield, Croydon as well as Croydon Park and beyond.

On behalf of the 2015 Board, I look forward to your continued membership with the CPBC. Remember together we can achieve many great outcomes for your local area.
