Geraldine Gallagher
Natasha Watkinson
I joined the Chamber of Commerce to be part of and effect meaningful change in the economic future of Grafton. Our Region is in the grip of dynamic change. On the brink of a future bypass and with short term infrastructure giving a boost to the Region, we need to plan for the future long term. My two young children are the reason I am passionate about future proofing industry and strengthening the economic future of not only Grafton but the Clarence Region.
Riley Law
I joined the chamber as a means to connect with & meet local business owners, & to stay up to date with up and coming projects for the region. Sitting down and chatting with the likes of Justin James, Phil Belletty & Des Harvey, I soon realised the chamber offers much more. The “Big Ideas” was a driving factor for me to be part of the executive. It is exciting to see so many projects nearing completion - I would like to play my small part is seeing the next “big ideas” come to fruition
