Ms JENNY AITCHISON (Maitland) (15:26:02): I congratulate the Maitland Business Chamber on its Movember luncheon, which was held today at Mansfield House.

Local rugby league legend and ambassador for Hunter Prostate Cancer Alliance Michael Hagan and CEO of the Newcastle Jets Lawrie McKinna were the guest speakers, raising funds in support of Movember and the East Maitland Men's Shed.

I urge anyone who has not donated to Movember to do so as there are only a few days left.

The Maitland Business Chamber is a proactive, inclusive and innovative chamber. I thank president Shane Hamilton of SJH Communications, vice president Michael Maffey of Four Walls Commercial and treasurer Louise Lennox of Dynamize Accounting.

I thank executive members, including Andrew Mason of Uaine Candles, Melissa King of Kurl Web, Andrew Vile of Vile & Vile Solicitors, Helen Oswald of Magnetic Shots, lain MacDonald of Maitland Junior Football Club, Melanie Power of, Melanie Thornton of SOAR Business Development, Sachin Joshi of Simplifying Business, and Randeep Singh of Tranter Lawyers.

I thank the executive assistant and member liaison officer, Kate Meyn-Shrimpton.

I congratulate the chamber on being announced as a finalist in the Hunter Business Awards 2020.
