Cali Calitz

Chamber Vice President

Cali Calitz

Desert to Coast - Director

My name is Cali Calitz. I have been a small business owner, a homeowner and a resident of Newman l since mid-2020, when we opened up a branch of our business in this lovely town. Our business, Desert to Coast Training and Assessing, was originally only based in Geraldton, but since 2020 we have now opened in Newman, Karratha and Port Hedland with plans to move into Tom Price and Paraburdoo in the foreseeable future.

The reason I joined the NCCI initially was to be able to tap into the network of businesses that make up the membership of the Chamber. The reason I stood for Vice President, was to try and make a positive difference for other small businesses in a similar situation as mine. I believe the chamber can be the conduit between small business and larger mining companies as well as larger contractors active in our region.

There is no reason for smaller businesses to "reinvent the wheel" or to try and go it alone, when we have a chamber to back us throughout this process. With Newman being (and becoming more so by the day) the hub of the Pilbara, there are so many opportunities for small business to tap into this resource.

I am always available for a chat and if I don't have the answer, I will try and find it as best I can. 

Lisa Brosnan Chamber Secretary Lisa Brosnan

Regional Operations Leader WA

Apprenticeship Support Australia

I’m Lisa, and I’ve lived in Newman for 4 years. Originally from North QLD (go the Cowboys!), we made the move to WA for a change! We now happily reside in Newman, where we came for a 2year adventure. My husband and I have 3 kids, and 3 goldies. Outside of my role with Apprenticeship Support Australia, I love getting involved in local business events, and tending my huge veggie patch. Having 3 kids, it’s given me the opportunity to get involved in lots of sport committees, and our school P&C. I strongly urge everyone to get involved in your local chambers, and other local committees…. Its what makes these small towns a wonderful place to live!

Shire of East Pilbara

I'm Kahu, and I’ve lived in Newman for 5 years. Originally from Northland New Zealand. My husband and I made the move to WA from the Gold Coast so that our family could be together as FIFO wasn't serving our family.

We now reside in Newman. We have 9 kids between us between the ages of 27 and 2.  Outside of my role with the NCCI I am also the Economic Development Coordinator (Tourism) for The Shire of East Pilbara where I continue to grow my Networking capabilities and learn from a wonderful supportive team.

I am passionate about the Chamber, building and helping to grow our business community.

EPIC – Community Coordinator

My name is Emma. I am the Community Coordinator for EPIC. Having moved to Newman with my young family over 2 years ago leaving behind the family farms for a Pilbara Adventure.

I have a diverse background in farming and construction, oil and gas but promptly in the Healthcare sector where I hold over 9 years of experience. I have been involved in community-based services and served in different roles on Committees in sporting, cultural, and volunteer community groups across Western Australia.

I joined the Chamber because I believe in helping to grow the local business community as well as the need that arose within the board. I hope to enhance our support for our small business community by bringing new and innovative ideas.

I look forward to being a positive representation for our Chamber and am happy to support where I can.
