TONY Romano has been re-elected president of the Melville Cockburn Chamber of Commerce (MCCC).

He will lead a nine-member board packed with new faces, including Jon Ellis, Tea Smith, Belinda Roberts and Carol Frieling.

The MCCC’s aim is to promote the interests of it members.

More than 70 of those converged on BWG Steakhouse in Applecross recently for the Chamber’s monthly after-hours event, where Mr Romano said he was excited for the year ahead.

“We’ll be focusing on what people want – after-hours networking events, business open days and training and development days,” he said.

“It’s about providing opportunities for members and keeping up our profile and relevance.”

Mr Romano said there were also plans for a small business awards evening.

A Get Connected Expo was held in Munster last week.
