Uniting, connecting, supporting and representing the Whitsunday business community.
The Airlie Beach Chamber of Commerce was established in 2013, building on the efforts and achievements of previous Airlie Beach Chambers. Initially, most of the Chamber members were located around the Main Street of Airlie Beach. As the new committee worked towards expanding the membership, it became apparent that the larger membership is based throughout the region and Airlie Beach Chamber was now a misnomer. In December 2015 the name was changed to Whitsunday Coast Chamber of Commerce to truly reflect the current membership and the Chamber’s coverage.
The Chamber is an apolitical and financially autonomous organisation working to continually improve business conditions in the region. While we work collaboratively with all levels of government and other representative bodies, both in the private and public sectors, the Chamber’s greatest asset is its independence. It allows us to advocate on a range of issues to advance the concerns and interests of our members in regional opportunities and community affairs.
As the voice of local business and industry, our purpose is to “make business connection” and leverage local opportunities. Our current membership is 120+ and is drawn from the entire Whitsunday business community.
The Whitsunday Coast Chamber of Commerce remains focused on its responsibility to build business capacity and to advocate for the best possible business environment for our members to operate in and to take advantage of opportunities. It aims to build and sustain economic growth over time.
