Matthew Wales re-elected Chamber President

Matthew Wales The Peninsula Chamber of Commerce has confirmed the re-election of long serving President Matthew Wales to head the organisation for another 12 months. “I am very proud to once again lead this organisation for the next 12 months. This is a very critical period for our local business community with a number of important matters that need to be addressed particularly leading up to the NSW State Election next March”, said Mr Wales. “The Chamber will continue to focus on finding a long term solution to the dredging of the Ettalong Channel which has vital business implications should the Palm Beach Ferry discontinue its services.” “We will also be taking a lead role with submissions to the soon to be released Consolidated LEP process which looks to
