President's Report - October 2021

“It is incredible to realise that we have been dealing with the consequences of the Covid -19 pandemic for over 18 months now. Uncertainty of rules, lockdowns, and movement restrictions etc have been the cause of the greatest economic impact on all sizes of businesses on the Gold Coast over that time. While I am usually an optimist, every time I think I see light at the end of the tunnel the tunnel seems to keep going on and on.

Gold Coast Youth Foyer officially opened!

It was great to see October mark the opening of the Gold Coast Youth Foyer right here in Southport.
