The Gladstone Chamber of Commerce and Industry is committed to supporting small and medium businesses across the Gladstone region with a core focus on economic prosperity and sustainability.
The Chamber meets their commitment through quality research, innovative projects and energy enhancing events, all focused on strengthening local business. With the continued growth of partner and sponsor support, GCCI will remain the voice of businesses throughout the region.
We have been a Chamber member for almost 18 months now and have found the networking, comradery, ability to put faces to business names and friendships made invaluable. We also found hosting a meeting to be greatly beneficial in showcasing to other local businesses the variety of services we offer. We highly recommend any local business, whatever the size, join GCCI.
Chamber meetings are a great opportunity to get to know other local business people. People still want to do business with people they know and like, so I think it is important to make the effort to meet business people that you wouldn’t see other than at a Chamber meeting. It’s not always easy to strike up a conversation with someone at a function, but everyone is there for the same reason so it’s a pretty welcoming environment.
I hate to miss a Chamber network meeting, they are so interesting from a business and social perspective. I actually conduct business at the monthly network meetings.
