Chamber president Geri Davie says the non-profit organisation, aligned with the Chamber of Commerce and Industry Queensland, works to support, connect and grow local businesses and industries.

“We believe supporting free trade is the best approach to grow our local economy, create more jobs and raise the living standards of every member of our community.

“We facilitate local business networking to help grow businesses, offer educational opportunities, represent the needs and values of businesses within our community, and provide members with opportunities for advancement.

“The Pine Rivers Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce our newest partnership with The Mill at Moreton Bay in Petrie,” Geri says.
