Brimbank business leaders are playing an important role in shaping business recovery support plans, as part of the Brimbank COVID-19 Business Response and Recovery Taskforce.
The Taskforce brings together business leaders representing a wide sector of businesses, skills and knowledge.
Since being set up in May 2020, the Taskforce has provided input for a range of recovery programs for local business and for Council campaigns designed to support Brimbank.
Over the past 12 months the Taskforce has also received briefings from federal and state politicians, and from representatives of the Victorian Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
Business leaders have provided input which is also helping to guide and inform Council’s advocacy and engagement with government around local business priorities.

Taskforce members include representatives of:
- Sunshine Business Association
- St Albans Business Association
