Promoting Lismore (and the 2480 postcode area) as the regional business capital and a great place to live and work, establish and do business.”
The Lismore Chamber of Commerce & Industry is Lismore’s peak business body. Our key goal is to create a strong, united and thriving business community. We do this in a number of ways:
- We run a series of training and seminar programs that aim to increase business development and competitiveness.
- We host and attend many networking functions including Business after Hours, business breakfasts and community/member forums. By doing so we provide our member businesses with increased opportunities for establishing business alliances and partnerships on a less formal level.
- We work with local business groups and identify issues of concern and develop solutions that enhance the community environment and business strength.
- We work closely with Local, State and Federal Governments. This means that we are an active participant in key discussions regarding business development and promotional activities in and around Lismore.
Lismore leads the region in many areas such as education, medicine, culture and arts, law, finance and construction. It has the largest workforce and the highest median income on the far north coast making it the powerhouse of local economies.
Lismore is strategically placed within range of Byron Bay, Ballina, Grafton, Casino, Kyogle, Nimbin, Murwillumbah and Tweed Heads. We are 2 hours from Brisbane and 2 hours from Coffs Harbour. It’s no wonder we have such a strong service industry with the towns and villages situated around us like spokes on a wheel.
