Successful partnerships on the menu
WITH the inaugural International
Women’s Day Lunch and a Work Life
Balance Workshop done and dusted, 2013
has already been a busy year for Women In
This joint initiative of the Albury Northside
and Wodonga Chambers, is an additional
service of the Chambers for their members.
The vision of ‘Women in Chamber’ is to
contribute to the business community and
support women in business by delivering
effective activities and communications
that meet the needs of its members.
The Core Committee met recently
and has set some big goals in terms of
improving processes to ensure the Women
In Chamber vision and deliverables
are aligned with Albury Northside and
Wodonga Chambers and that it continues
to deliver relevant and value driven
activities for members.
One of these is the annual Gala Dinner,
which will be held on July 26, and is the
premier event for business women in
the Albury-Wodonga region. The guest
speaker this year is Lucy Turnbull.
With a background in commercial law
and investment banking, Mrs Turnbull is
a Director of Turnbull & Partners Pty. Ltd,
a private investment company. She also
chairs ASX-listed biotechnology company
Prima Biomed Limited.
Mrs Turnbull became the first female
Lord Mayor of Sydney from 2003. She
has also been active in the not-for-profit
sector and, in 2011, she was appointed
an Office of the Order of Australia for her
distinguished service to the community.
Many members are in partnership with
their spouse, in business as well as
marriage so this year’s topic is Successful
Partnerships. Mrs Turnbull will share her
experience in building and maintaining
an individual career and businesses while
working together with husband, Malcolm
Turnbull, in a successful marriage.
The second Women In Chamber Workshop
is scheduled for November. Following a
similar format to the Work Life Balance
Workshop, this will be a lunchtime event
that is highly interactive and provides
tools and actions for participants to take
away and implement in their lives and
The Women In Chamber Development
Program, currently in its second year,
will also continue. This program aims to
extend the level of support offered to local
business women and reach further into the
community to support female students by
helping to build skills, establish careers
and ultimately develop the future business
women of this region. The assistance
provided through this program is through
financial support of $1000 for the first
year of tertiary education or pursuance of
career goals, plus mentoring support.
Women In Chamber is always looking for
volunteers to join their event committees.
It is a way to get involved and contribute
to the business community, make great
connections and build networks.
