The Illawarra Business Chamber has just issued ballot papers for the election of its Regional Advisory Council (RAC).

This influential group provides advice to the Executive Director on issues affecting, or likely to affect, the Illawarra’s economic development.

We have a strong cohort of prospective representatives, representing the economic diversity, small and large business, as well as the geographic spread of the Illawarra, coming from a variety of private, not for profit and public sector backgrounds.

Now it is up to you, our members, to vote for your preferred candidates to represent businesses across Wollongong, Shellharbour, Kiama, Shoalhaven and the Wingecarribee local government areas. See the candidates here.

Votes are due by 5pm on Friday 6 September 2019. For more information, please contact us on (02) 4229 4722 or email
