Port Macquarie Chamber of Commerce
Monday 8 July 2019

The Port Macquarie Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the Jackson family, will honour the memory and contributions of the late Wayne Jackson at the Gala Dinner for the 2019 Holiday Coast Credit Union Greater Port Macquarie Business Awards.

 

Wayne was a valued Port Chamber Board member, had previously been involved with organising and planning the annual Business Awards events and served as Treasurer for several years, until his passing in June 2018. Wayne worked in the banking industry locally since 1995 and was well known and respected within the business community.

 

He was regularly involved with charitable projects including Relay for Life, and the recent ‘Him in Heels’ walk, Business House relays, as well as many other community events.

 

Wayne’s involvement in sport saw him volunteer with the Wauchope Soccer Club, as well as more recently with the Wauchope Blues Rugby League Club where he served as a committee member, club treasurer, first aid officer and coach of multiple teams. A founding member of the annual Business Awards, Wayne was crucial in providing support through sponsorship and volunteering.

 

In honour of his contributions to the local community, nominations are now open for the annual Wayne Jackson Outstanding Community Service Award, which will be presented by Wayne’s wife, Rebecca Jackson and Chamber President, Michael Mowle on Saturday, 27th July at the Gala Dinner for the 2019 Holiday Coast Credit Union Greater Port Macquarie Business Awards.

 

Entrants are required to meet the award criteria through demonstration of their commitment to the Port Macquarie-Hastings community and can submit an entry until midnight on Sunday, 21st July, 2019.
