President’s Message – November 2018

Dear Members

The year is fast coming to an end with only the November and December meetings remaining.

A state election is set for 24 November and a federal election looms in the very near future.

The Geelong Business Club as a Non Political and Non Sectarian organization endeavors to provide members with the opportunity to be informed by ministerial and shadow ministerial members of state and federal parliament from the major parties. The Hon. Richard Marles federal member for Corio attended our May meeting and the Hon. Sarah Henderson sitting member for Corangamite is our guest speaker for November. Ultimately the policies and legislation undertaken by the government and those that aspire to government has a great bearing on business and our own personal lives.

Last month the CEO of the Geelong Port, Brett Winter was our guest speaker. Brett articulated clearly the great economic impact and value the Port of Geelong adds to our region.

I look forward to seeing you all at our November dinner meeting.

Tim Noonan
