We believe it’s important for Lake Macquarie’s businesses and community to prosper.
In November 2013, Lake Macquarie business leaders and local Business Chambers identified that the broader Lake Macquarie business community lacked a clear identity and was not currently receiving the attention and support it deserved.
Several local Business Chambers decided that a unified approach through amalgamation would enable them to better support the entire Lake Macquarie business community helping the city to thrive and prosper.
In October 2015 LMB was incorporated as a not-for-profit, Company Limited by Guarantee. A diverse group of passionate, energetic business owners and community leaders have come forward from around the lake to be foundation leaders and Board Members of LMB and this new approach to supporting Lake Macquarie businesses and community.
