The Donnybrook Balingup Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DBCCI) finds itself in the search for a new president following the recent announcement of Rowan Lowe’s planned resignation at the annual general meeting held in October. Throughout Lowe’s impressive nine-year term as President, the Chamber has experienced significant growth and positive transformations, cultivating a flourishing business community in the Donnybrook Balingup region and providing crucial support during the Covid pandemic. His leadership has played a pivotal role in driving initiatives such as the Shop Local voucher campaign, events, and collaborations that have proven beneficial for local businesses and residents alike.

The Donnybrook Balingup Chamber of Commerce actively encourages its members to nominate and express interest, calling on those with a passion for community development and business advocacy to step forward.
While the AGM successfully welcomed four new committee members, resulting in a full and active committee, the search for a new President remains underway to lead the organization into its forthcoming chapter. Committee members extend their appreciation to Rowan for his dedicated service and express confidence in the Chamber’s ongoing success.
Rowan expressing his gratitude for the chance to serve as President, remarked, “It has been an incredible journey working with the Chamber, and I am proud of what we have achieved together. However, I believe it’s time to pass the torch and allow new leadership to bring fresh ideas and perspectives to continue our mission of supporting local businesses.”
