AT the recent AGM, members of the Merrylands Chamber of Commerce unanimously voted to re-elect me as president and Mario Capanna as vice president.
New members elected were Randa Sacedon (Wattle and Daub Conveyancing secretary), Gregg Ritchie (Richie and Partners treasurer).
Committee members were Susan Wahab from Fatana's Hair and Beauty, Colin Links from Fairfax Community Newspapers and Abraham Khoury from Travel Scene Merrylands.
I would like to congratulate the new team and thank them for nominating and helping build and develop the chamber further for the benefit of all of Holroyd.
