The Collie Chamber of Commerce and Industry is set to undertake a review into its internal structure and how it can best serve its members after a difficult period for business in the town. Chamber chief executive Bec Woods left the organisation last week after 10 years in the role and vice-president Julie Hillier said now was as good a time as any to perform an internal review. “The pandemic has given people a chance to reflect on what is best for them, and Bec has decided that after 10 years of loyal service to the chamber it is time for her next adventure and we obviously wish her well with whatever is next in store for her,” Mrs Hillier said. “From a chamber perspective, we have been busy helping our members through the COVID crisis and in the wake of that we have been putting together a strategic roadmap for the future and we have pulled together that strategy that has four key elements to it and we have received some funding support from South32. “We are doing an organisational capability review which will determine what we need for the short, medium and long term and we are also looking to take the chance to start collaborating with other chambers. “That would enable us to start tapping into some government-funded support mechanisms, so we have done that in conjunction with Business South West. “There have been times where resources have been stretched, especially during the COVID crisis, and we are looking at how us and other regional chambers can work collaboratively together and can leverage of each other, so there is a huge opportunity there.” The review will be run internally, although sessions will be run with member businesses, giving them the opportunity to contribute to the organisation’s future. “The sessions with our members will just give us an idea of what they all value, what we need to continue doing, what we need to do more of and if there is anything else we need to refresh or reassess,” Mrs Hillier said.
