The Sutherland Shire Business Chamber (SSBC) brings together members of local business chambers throughout the entire Sutherland Shire area.
Established in May 2016 with the signing of a memorandum of understanding by local business chambers, the SSBC provides an unprecedented level of support to businesses operating in the Southern Sydney region.
A stronger voice for Sutherland Shire business owners
The SSBC enables a more efficient and effective way of dealing with the many economic and social issues that impact the entire Sutherland Shire area.
The collaboration between local business chambers in the area means a cohesive message can be delivered to peak bodies and government organisations – giving the SSBS (and local businesses) a loud and clear voice on the issues that matter most.
Membership of any local business chamber within the Sutherland Shire area provides automatic membership of the SSBC.
Our members enjoy the many benefits of membership with the Chamber.
The President of each local business chamber under the SSBC umbrella is a member of the board.
Inaugural chair of the SSBC is Joanne Ryan, Managing Director of Infodec Communications.
Media enquiries should be directed to Joanne Ryan in the first instance (email: firstname.lastname@example.org, telephone: 9531 5595).
Surrounded by the Tasman Sea, Georges River and Royal National Park, the Sutherland Shire is an attractive area that more than 226,000 Sydneysiders call home.
With the lowest departure rate of any Sydney local government, according to the most recent ABS statistics, the Sutherland Shire has been described as Sydney’s most ‘loveable’ area.
While it’s already a great place to live and work, our vision is to boost the Sutherland Shire even higher on the liveability index.
We aim to bring this vision to life by putting the Shire front and centre of government thinking on issues that impact the area, promoting local business diversity and driving economic growth in three key areas:
- Medical Precinct
The Caringbah Medical Precinct offers support, opportunity and benefits for the entire community, both now and in the future.
The Sutherland Shire’s plentiful attractions and relaxed lifestyle present a natural connection with Australia’s growing tourism sector.
- Local jobs
With more than half of Sutherland Shire workers leaving the area each day for work, creating local job opportunities is a priority issue.
SSBC agree in principle with developments which generate local business opportunities and employment, are supported by appropriate infrastructure, and are socially and environmentally responsible.
