NEW MEMBERSHIP DIRECTOR TO BRING ‘FRESH’ APPROACH TO CHAMBER

Canberra Business Chamber is excited to announce the appointment of Emma-Jane Toscan as its new Director of Membership. Emma-Jane will help the Chamber increase its representation of businesses of all types and sizes and help improve member support.

“Our reason for being is to represent our members and their views at all levels of government. We provide advice, connections, support and training to underpin the success of Canberra businesses,” Canberra Business Chamber CEO, Robyn Hendry said.

“The Chamber is proud to be the leading voice of business in the Territory. Our major strength is the engagement, efforts and energies of our members. Our members’ firsthand knowledge of the ACT business environment and areas for improvement informs everything we do.

“A broad membership base ensures we are aware of issues specific to all parts of the sector and therefore able to advocate on their behalf.”

Emma-Jane joins the Chamber with significant experience as a senior marketing professional. Her most recent role was with Woolworths Insurance. She has also worked for IBM, Virgin Money Australia and Ogilvy.

“We look forward to the enthusiasm and expertise Emma-Jane will bring to the Chamber and the ACT business community,” Ms Hendry said.

“As our Director of Membership, Emma-Jane will build strong relationships with businesses throughout the region. She will often be their first point of interaction with the Chamber and be the conduit between their needs and the services we can offer them.”

Ms Toscan is thrilled to be returning to Canberra and joining the Canberra Business Chamber, particularly at such an exciting time. “I look forward to working with the team to further develop the Chamber’s offering and value to its members and building an even stronger membership base and future,” she said.
