Advocacy

Our committees and board develop positions on issues affecting our members, from trade to tax to industry standards. Through these positions, we advocate for our members to government both here and in the United States. To participate on a committee, you must work for a Financal Member Company of the Chamber. Current committee members enjoy exclusive access to thought leaders and government in order to address issues affecting their business. 

I’m on the Trade and Government Committee and the Health Committee and both provide a really useful platform for discussions around policy development issues. We’ll do a visit to Canberra, for example, to meet key decision makers as part of AmCham, which is often most interesting and useful. AmCham offers a great opportunity to broaden your network and meet like-minded companies to build on issues within your industry and affecting your industry.  Sara Pantzer, Head of Government Affairs and Policy, Amgen Australia Pty Ltd
