Pat Purcell Steps Down As President of Mosman Chamber of Commerce
Ms FELICITY WILSON (North Shore)
—I acknowledge Pat Purcell who has recently stepped down as President of the Mosman Chamber of Commerce. I thank Pat for her long standing service in this role and as a member of the Chamber. Pat has run retail businesses in Mosman for almost three decades and has been a key advocate for the Mosman business community. The Mosman Chamber of Commerce is a non-profit organisation that promotes and supports the interests of the Mosman business community. The Chamber plays a key role in advocating on behalf of these local businesses and connecting members together. Pat was instrumental in leading the 'Think Mosman First' initiative to help local businesses get back on their feet after the impacts of the COVID‑19 pandemic. I congratulate Tamara Keniry and Ilona Vass who have taken up their new roles as President and Vice President. Both women have experience in starting up new businesses. Tamara founded PureFree to create reusable but also beautifully designed products such as glass water bottles and coffee cups. Ilona founded a global training and advisory company called Dancing with the Dragons.
