By February 8, 2011 November 21st, 2014 Advice for Businesses, News

The Ringwood Chamber of Commerce and Industry is Ringwood’s main trader group, representing its members on matters relating to commerce in Ringwood.

Tonight’s meeting included an update on development projects within Ringwood, including the long awaited redevelopment of Eastland. While some commercial development is taking place, the catalyst for Ringwood’s transformation will occur with the next stage of the Eastland redevelopment and the transformation of Ringwood Station into an accessible, integrated and safe transport interchange.

The Ringwood Chamber of Commerce is one of Maroondah’s longest running trader groups and provides a networking opportunity for its members. This evening Terry Macdonald, the Chairperson of Eastern Volunteers, spoke about the organisation and its emphasis on business partnerships.

Constructive partnerships can be formed between businesses and community groups, but it is imperative that the focus is on delivering mutual value. While corporate social responsibility, can form part of this business case, there is a need to demonstrate tangible value that creates a beneficial partnership for both the community organisation and business.

Eastern Volunteers is actively discussing partnerships with businesses to ensure mutual value and benefits.
