The Yamba Chamber of Commerce has elected its new executive, with James Allan from family-run business Caperberry Cafe taking on the president’s role.

Mr Allan, who has been a member since his family bought the business 12 months ago, said he aimed to reinvigorate the chamber.

“First and foremost, I want to boost the chamber’s membership,” he said, “and improve the economic health of the town.”

He said a larger “more involved” membership would facilitate new initiatives.

“More business people would have a say in what those initiatives could be,” he said.

“Being a member provides an opportunity to voice ideas about what should happen in the town.”

Other executive members are Hayley Talbot (VP), Ruth Cameron (treasurer), Roslyn Woodward (secretary) and executive members, Rick Angelo, Debbie McCredie and Bev Mansfield.
