Maroochydore Chamber of Commerce President Brendan Bathersby has been awarded Life Membership following his nine year stint as an Executive team member which has included the past five years as President.

The Life Membership was awarded at the Chamber’s recent AGM where Mr Bathersby was re-elected unopposed as President for a further 12 month term.

“I’m very honoured to be awarded Life Membership of the Maroochydore Chamber of Commerce. It’s been a really rewarding and fulfilling time as we’ve worked to steady the ship and move into positive territory from a membership, sponsorship and financial perspective.

“Personally it’s also an honour for me to be mentioned among other well know local business and community identities who have received Life Membership of our chamber including John Schroder, Leigh Rachow, Melinda Shelton, Myles McNamara and former Maroochydore Councillor Gillian Taylor.

“Our Chamber is in a very strong position at the moment but we all know that there is still much more that we need to achieve in the next year and beyond, in particular the focus on advocating for the delivery of passenger rail into the Maroochydore CBD,” Brendan said.

Mr Bathersby thanked outgoing committee members including treasurer Lachlan Ballinger, secretary Charmain Bastian along with Will Thompson, Simon Rub and Mat Walker for their outstanding contribution.
