Chair, Cairns Young Chamber

Hi there – Rosie here! I’m thrilled to step up as the new Chair of the Cairns Young Chamber.

For those not familiar with the CYC community, we’re Cairns’ leading body for young professionals, business owners and aspiring leaders.

We empower emerging leaders within the region, working with local businesses and business leaders to create impactful professional development and networking opportunities.

With 2024 in full swing, the CYC is doubling down on this commitment.

Committee updates
A massive thank you goes to Ben Cole, our outgoing Chair, whose leadership has been nothing short of transformative. Ben built a great team and more importantly, helped to foster an engaged community, and we’re looking forward to building on the CYC’s success in the year ahead.

A big thank you also goes to Brody Oxenham, who after many years of leading our marketing efforts has wrapped up his role. Brody’s made a huge impact on our community, and I’d like to sincerely thank him for his contribution.

Finally, congratulations to Noah Hodgson, our incoming Vice Chair and Treasurer. Noah’s been an integral member of the committee and I know that with Noah’s help, we’re well positioned to take the CYC to new heights in 2024.

2023 in review
Reflecting on the past year, we’re proud to have welcomed over 400 attendees across the 10 events we held throughout the year.

Our gatherings ranged from vibrant social mixers that fostered new connections whilst enjoying the incredible venues our region has to offer, to thought-provoking panel discussions that provide a forum for Cairns’ top leaders to share their insights.

These events are the cornerstone of our value proposition, ensuring there’s something valuable for everyone.

I’d like to sincerely thank CBC Staff Selection and CityLife Media for their unwavering support of the CYC. Their partnership helps to magnify the impact of the CYC and create new opportunities for Cairns’ emerging leaders to engage, connect and inspire.

Looking ahead
So, what’s on the horizon? We’ve got a stellar lineup of events on the calendar this year.

If you’re keen to get involved with the CYC, curious about our upcoming events, or interested in partnership opportunities, I encourage you to visit our website or follow us on our social channels.

We look forward to welcoming you at our next event.

All the best,
Rosie Mitchener
