Dear ​


In the year since I joined BMEE, the Board and team have been busy working to deliver on our strategy. This strategy identifies four pillars which are:

  • Health and Wellbeing
  • Education
  • Creative Industries
  • World Heritage Industries

These areas represent the unique strengths of our local government area and as such, provide opportunities for economic growth. World Heritage Industries includes tourism, the food industry and bushfire design and building.


With a view to helping local businesses prepare their goods or services for export, we recently co-hosted a successful webinar with the International Business Accelerator group. We are considering running a similar workshop in the future so please get in touch if you are looking to grow your enterprise through export.


If it's the accounting side of your business you are looking to learn more about, Blue Mountains City Council in association with Western Sydney Business Centre have arranged a free tax basics for small business workshop for locals on 22 August in Katoomba. For more details, please see our Other Events section below.


At the moment, we are planning for the 2018 Australian Bushfire Building Conference, which takes place on September 6-7. Our program advisory committee have secured Dr Chris Dicus, head of the Wildland-Urban Interface Module of the California Fire Science Consortium to present at the conference. The event, as the only one of its kind in Australia and now in its fifth year, is for professionals and practitioners in the bushfire building industry.  Please follow this link for more information.
