Shoalhaven Professional Business Association

We are a group of local professionals whose Vision is to promote the Shoalhaven to Professionals and potential Professionals as the place to live work and play. We are concentrating on encouraging local students to view the Shoalhaven and a professional career as a goal for their future and to facilitate employers within the Shoalhaven to attract staff from outside the area. In this way we can all grow our businesses and our city.
