Deakin Community Awards

Last night our President, Edwina Ricci, was awarded the 2018 Deakin Community Award for her contribution to services within the municipality.  Well Done, Edwina!!

Also nominated for this award was our long standing Jim Burns – his contribution to the municipality and the Croydon Chamber over the past 50 plus years is to be commended.

Both of these people are selfless in their contribution to our area and are to be admired.

Tuesday Night was a significant milestone for the Ringwood and Croydon Chambers of Commerce as they came together as one, to host the inaugural networking event of The Maroondah Business Group. This has been four years in the making and has a fantastic foundation of relational trust that will see the growth of this group into the future.

Hosted by the fabulous new Sage Hotel, who have partnered with the groups as sponsor of venue, food and drinks on arrival, there was never any doubt this event would be a huge success.  Check out our gallery for some photos taken by Linda Willmott during the night.

Fifty businesses showed their support and heard local legend and business owner Dale White of The Cellar Door, The Public Brewery, Bekindales Cafe in Croydon and other ventures speak on his journey in business. He stressed the importance of successful partnerships and highlighted the importance the role his wife and business partner Bec has played in their success. He was passionate, real and provided great advice to anyone in business.

We thank Dale for his honesty and encourage anyone to visit one of his businesses and see why he is winning awards locally and statewide.

Attendees liked the format and we now look to finding more great local businesses to tell their stories.

We live in a great city and we appreciate the support the Maroondah City council provide as we now look to collaborate on future events.

The Maroondah Business Group meets at the Sage Hotel every second Tuesday of the month from 5.30 – 8pm. The next meeting will be March 13th – booking on Trybooking – Members FREE – Non Members $25.00.  Your $100 membership entitles you to these events February to November – so is Great Value!  Join NOW!
