Demonstration of the belief in the OCCI as an effective, appropriate and capable influence is the significant growth in membership from 18 in May 2012 to approximately 120 at present. The OCCI Board acknowledged the need for a consultative and strategic future approach to business that now positions the OCCI to respond to the needs of its members most effectively.
These needs include training and professional development, knowledge creation and awareness (in relation to the procurement process) and access to resources required to be competitive – including utilities (power and water), transport and affordable housing and business premises.
From an economic, social and environmental perspective, the membership of the OCCI contribute to the sustainable and functional growth of the Onslow community. This contribution comes through creation of local employment, investment in the development of the town and through access to affordable goods, services, accommodation and utilities.
In some circumstances, the role of the OCCI is to represent the community regarding future development – especially in relation to further increasing the uptake of local content and promoting buy local, diversification of the local economy, key infrastructure development and care and maintenance of the local environment.
