Over the past 12 months the Cowra Business Chamber has strengthened their committee with new members bringing fresh ideas and unique talent.
Cowra Business Chamber has also grown their membership by over 10% in the previous year as well as commencing a number of new initiatives.
One of the initiatives was starting Women In Business networking events.

Another event they have introduced to assist businesses within our community grow and develop were Masterclass events.
Masterclass events focus around a different subject each quarter nominated by Chamber members.
