SMALL business is too big to ignore.
That’s the catchcry of the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry and will never be more evident than when its “Skyboard” visits Bega next week.
The NSW Business Chamber is inviting all local business owners, employees and residents to show their support for small business and the important role they play in supporting regional economies and local jobs when the Southern Hemisphere’s largest mobile Skyboard visits the region on September 4.
The national “Small Business – Too Big to Ignore” campaign launched in April, and so far over 50,000 voices have registered their support on the campaign website, toobigtoignore.org.au.
As the final phase of the campaign, the Skyboard is touring NSW promoting the campaign and providing a backdrop for supporters to gather and become involved.
The mobile Skyboard will be at the Bega netball courts car park, Carp St, at 5pm next Wednesday, September 4.
“We are now at the pointy end of our small business campaign as we close in on the federal election and we intend to make sure that politicians hear loud and clear the voice of our small business community,” Gary Ryan, NSW Business Chamber Capital Far South Coast regional manager, said.
“We have been amazed at the level of support and interest we have had for our campaign.
“It has resonated with small businesses that are sick and tired of being overlooked and forgotten by all levels of government, and importantly, the wider community who understand that a strong local economy is dependent on strong local small businesses.
“We’ve been campaigning that small business is simply too big to ignore – it’s now time for the community to show our politicians that this statement is true by turning out to support the campaign’s mobile Skyboard as it tours the region,” Mr Ryan said.
