We launched Riverside Business Chamber Incorporated (RBC) at our October Business After Hours, amalgamating Ryde Business Forum and Ryde Macquarie Park Chamber of Commerce into one dynamic organisation.
Around 80 members and guests joined us at the Ryde campus to celebrate, and enjoy delicious catering by the students of TAFE NSW. The vibe at the event was fantastic – very positive and there was a real sense of excitement in the air about RBC and our role with the business community in the Ryde, Hunters Hill and Lane Cove districts.
Jon Black, MD of TAFE NSW, told us how TAFE is now one seamless organisation rather than several institutes with different pricing, and how that benefits students. We thank TAFE NSW for their generosity and the students of Ryde College for their excellent food and beverage service.
