The Chamber of Commerce is one of Australia’s leading regional business bodies – boasting around 900 members and with a rich, long and successful history of advocating on behalf of Geelong business. We are unashamedly ‘pro business’ with the interests of Geelong businesses the driving force behind our efforts to ensure a healthy economy for industries and businesses – big and small – operating in the Geelong region.
Our role is also to support, educate and facilitate a healthy, vibrant business community. Our networking events are the largest in the region and designed to encourage business professionals to interact with each other and expand their business contacts.
The Chamber also offers a diverse range of services that are designed specifically to facilitate the growth of businesses in the region.
The Chamber also has the important role of being the 'go to' place for information that allows business to enhance its skill base, explore new directions and grow its market share - whatever the industry. We also provide an abundance of networking opportunities, allowing businesses to: connect and form strategic business-to-business affiliations; gain access to areas of government; and, promote themselves within the region.
The Chamber's operations are led by Chief Executive Officer, Ben Flynn, who works under the strategic direction of the Chamber Council - a collection of volunteer Directors elected from within the Chamber's own membership. The diversity of our membership is outstanding and you can find information about each of our Members in the Members Directory.
The Geelong Chamber of Commerce has a long and proud history - dating back to 1853 - and today it is one of the largest and most active organisations of its type in Australia.
