Mission & Purpose

The Voice of Business

The Geelong Chamber of Commerce is the ‘voice’ for Geelong’s business community – driving business growth, reducing business barriers, advancing Geelong’s future by supporting and nurturing businesses in the Geelong region.

As Geelong’s premier business representative body, the Chamber advocates on behalf of all forms of business – micro, small, medium and large – ensuring industries have a say on the issues that impact upon the economic viability of business and the region as a whole.

The Geelong Chamber of Commerce ensures that the voice of Geelong business is heard by the people that matter. We build strategic relationships designed to contribute to the processes and decisions that shape the future direction of our region.
