THE NSW Business Chamber “Sky Board” is coming to Narooma!
This four-storey-high message “Small Business – Too Big to Ignore” is meant to focus the attention of politicians and others to the issues facing small businesses.
The Sky Board will be outside the Narooma Visitor Centre on the Princes Highway at 7.30am on Thursday, September 5.
It takes about two hours to set up, and two hours to pack down.
Narooma Chamber of Commerce president Orit Karny Winters worked with the NSW chamber to get the sign to Narooma and also working with them to organise the recent candidates’ debate at Club Narooma.
The NSW Business Chamber is inviting all local business owners, employees and residents to show their support for small business and the important role they play in supporting regional economies and local jobs when the Southern Hemisphere’s largest mobile Sky Board visits.
The NSW Business Chamber, along with the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry and other state chambers of commerce, launched the national campaign in April, and so far over 50,000 voices have registered their support on the campaign website, toobigtoignore.org.au
“We are now at the pointy end of our small business campaign as we close in on the Federal Election and we intend to make sure that politicians hear loud and clear the voice of our small business community,” said Gary Ryan, NSW Business Chamber Capital Far South Coast Regional Manager.
“We have been amazed at the level of support and interest we have had for our campaign. It has resonated with small businesses that are sick and tired of being overlooked and forgotten by all levels of government, and importantly, the wider community who understand that a strong local economy is dependent on strong local small businesses.
“We’ve been campaigning that small business is simply too big to ignore – it’s now time for the community to show our politicians that this statement is true by turning out to support the campaign’s mobile Skyboard as it tours the region.
“I encourage everyone to stop by the campaign Skyboard when it’s in town, say hello, sign up for the campaign and help us get a better deal for our local small businesses,” Gary Ryan said.
