Message from the Chair

The CGHB is a not for profit small business networking and advocacy group. We are run by a board of volunteers who all have an interest in small business via ownership, consulting, or education.

We are apolitical and do not seek financial assistance from Government sources. Membership fees and our events are our only source of income. For us to remain 100% independent we need support from the small business community by becoming members.

With that support we will continue to offer affordable membership, hold monthly business networking events and provide an independent voice for small businesses in Greater Hobart.

Chair, Confederation of Greater Hobart Business

MEDIA RELEASE: Is a backflip all that bad?

During this current Tasmanian State election campaign plenty of terms and slogans are being bandied around in equal measure by both major parties.

Terms like moving forward, strong plan and cost of living relief are used when they describe themselves but what words are used to describe each other’s actions when it comes to policy changes?
