The Bega Valley Business Forum has received funding for a coordinators role from the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal in partnership with the Paul Ramsay Foundation.
This project funding has been used to engage a local consulting firm BizBast. Since November 2021 the coordinators have been busy working on activities in this role to support 6 of the local business chambers that are members of the Bega Valley Business Form.
Some of these activities include:
- Grant Funding Applications
- Governance review and good governance guide
- Capacity building meetings and action plans
- Digital marketing support
- New website development
The Bega Valley Business forum very much appreciates this funding from FRRR and it has been put to good use in supporting the not-for-profit volunteer led local business chambers. It is expected that the work under this funding will complete in June 2022.
