We are a non-profit organisation with a broad objective of providing a networking  forum for our members to develop their business activities, promote trade, and in turn, deepen the relationship between Australia and Southern African countries.

Membership Benefits

  • Networking & Events – mix with like minded business people and hear from key speakers to find opportunities for your business.
  • Providing Information – what you need to know about doing business in Southern Africa, and who to speak with
  • Advocacy – your voice to government on issues impacting your business
  • Social – our 8+ events per year bring all sorts of people together in a fun and relaxed environment

One of the benefits of membership is that current members can indicate their membership status by appropriate use of the Chamber’s name and logo on their websites, social media and other communications.

It would, for example, be appropriate to state on a corporate member’s website “Proud Member of the Australian Business Chamber of Southern Africa” and append the logo. Please note that the context in which the name or logo is used must not suggest any support, endorsement or approval by the Chamber of the member, of any other person or of the products or services of any person including the member.

The Chamber accepts no responsibility or liability for use of the name or logo by a member or any other person. The Chamber reserves the right to require the name and/or the logo to be removed immediately from any public context associated with a member. Thanks for your assistance in complying with these rules.
