Our October event sure taught us a few important things.

Our speaker, courtesy of Consumer Affairs Victoria, was a former university lecturer — and a lesson we got.

The presentation covered some of the more popular (and tricky) scams that criminals are playing upon businesses, and how we can protect ourselves from them.  But it also covered some of our rights in dealing with customers and suppliers, as well as our obligations.

12 July – Problems with our email system

We only just discovered yesterday that the emails going out to most of the 150 members and prospective members of the Ringwood Chamber of Commerce are being blocked by their spam filters.

Thank you for your patience.

Carl Turney, Administrator
