Description

Come and Join CBC in Celebrating Our 30th Birthday!

Learn More About the Role of ACCC over a Delicious Italian Dinner!

Note: Price includes complimentary beer, wine and soft drink on table & delicious Italian Buffet dinner!

In 1987 a group of local businesspeople got together to form the Smithfield-Wetherill Park Chamber of Commerce. One of those founding members, Robert Savell from Hydrocare Pools, is still with us 30 years later and we will ask him about how the chamber has changed over the years.

We will celebrate three decades of representing employers and helping businesses to grow. Cumberland Business Chamber, as we are now known, is focused these days on the largest employer in the region, the industrial sector, and all of the support networks that service this sector, and we attract people from as far away as the Sydney CBD, Macarthur region, Sutherland Shire and Central Coast.

Guest Speaker: The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (ACCC).

Our very special guest at the 30th anniversary dinner of the Cumberland Business Chamber is none other than ACCC Deputy Chairperson Dr Michael Schaper.
What do you know about the ACCC and how they help the business community? On Tuesday October 31st you will find out.
Dr Schaper was first appointed to the ACCC in 2008. Before that he was president of the Small Enterprise Association of Australia & New Zealand and served as Small Business Commissioner for the ACT. His other small business-centric activities included being Chairperson of the ACT Small & Micro-Business Advisory Council and Director of the International Council for Small Business.
In 2009 Dr Schaper was named the COSBOA National Small Business Champion.
He is particularly interested in small business, franchising, industry associations and business liaison.
He serves as an Adjunct Professor with Curtin University and a senior honorary research fellow at the University of Western Australia.
He has written several books including Competition Law, Regulation & SMEs in the Asia-Pacific….Entrepreneurship & Small Business Asia-Pacific…Government’s, SMEs & Entrepreneurship Development.
At our anniversary dinner we will be asking Dr Schaper to explain what the ACCC does, look at some of their cases and learn how important small businesses are to the ACCC.
