The Douglas Chamber of Commerce was incorporated in 2004/5.  The Executive Committee is a team of passionate local representatives  from a diverse cross-section of the Port Douglas businesses community.

Meetings are held monthly to discuss a broad range of business and community issues relevant to the Douglas Shire.

We encourage you to read the constitution of the Douglas Chamber of Commerce to better understand the processes that govern operation of the Chamber.
