Cooroy’s business “heartbeat” is taking a few deep breaths as the Chamber of Commerce holds its AGM this Wednesday a few months early to help traders deal with the impacts of COVID-19.

The Cooroy Chamber is set to have a settled line up with no challenges for positions which means no need for members to vote.
