ABOUT THE DCCI
ABOUT THE DCCI
MISSION AND FOCUS
The Devonport Chamber of Commerce and Industry Inc. is a vital mechanism for the advancement of commercial, business and industrial interests in the Devonport area.
The Chamber is constantly striving to improve the quality of life for residents in concert with its continuing endeavours to create an economic climate conducive to the development, fostering and well being of existing and new commercial interests.
Our mission is to be an energising and vitalising force in the community. We seek to unite all the industrial, commercial and government interests for the purpose of supporting those activities which are broader than any single business or industry but which promotes the well being of the Devonport community as a whole.
The Chamber is a “Clearing House” for ideas and is intended to be a working forum for the development of the city and its surrounding region.
OBJECTIVES & PURPOSE
To promote commercial, trading, shipping and manufacturing interest in Tasmania and elsewhere and to take all the necessary measures to advance the same;
To collect and disseminate information on all matter or interest to the commercial community;
To use every means within its power for the removal and redress of grievances and for promotion of trade of the State;
To watch over and protect the general interests of commerce;
To establish and maintain a code of practice whereby the transactions of business may be simplified and facilitated;
To undertake by arbitration or otherwise the settlement of disputes arising out of commerce and to record such discussions for the future help and guidance of members;
To amalgamate or cooperate with in any institutions, societies or associations having objectives wholly or in part similar to those of the Chamber.
HOW THE CHAMBER WORKS
From its annual meeting each year, the members elect industry representatitves whose responsibilities include bringing forward issues from their specialist sectors for executive discussion and action.
The Chamber Executive Committee conducts monthly meetings at The Devonport Corporate Centre, Edward Street Devonport Board Room. The aim of the monthly meetings is to bring together representation of member organisations where representatives can freely express the ideas and issues relating to their particular groups.
Reporting of market conditions within each industry sector at monthly meetings also provides the Chamber with current information on market trends and the health of the local economy. This also gives an indication of the local market as compared with the overall State economy.
As a non-party political group, the Chamber can take up any matters with the applicable level of government on behalf of the body or individual that is seeking an effective outcome.
In summary, the Chamber views itself as a working partnertship of business, professional and community interests, intent on progressing commerce and industry in Devonport and its surrounding districts.
