Goals for the chamber

Sydney Business Chamber and NSW Business Chamber both have a focus enterprise and large business sector, while NSW Business Chamber represents small to medium businesses this does not come across as their primary focus.

I would like to see CBD Sydney Business Chamber become a both a networking hub and advocate for small to medium businesses in the Sydney CBD, The Rocks and Barangaroo.

Furthermore, I would like to see the CBD Sydney Business Chamber, in consultation with members, establish some core principles. These principles can then be used as a reference point when advocating on policies or formulating plans for future.
