Established in 1981, the venerable Australian American Chamber of Commerce exists to embody, promote and advance the Uniquely Australian Way to Work and Play. This means taking a quintessentially Australian approach to both business and pleasure, allowing for seriousness and fun, success and relaxation.
We were delighted that you were able to join us in celebrating Australia Day 2016. We are so grateful for the support of you, our wonderful sponsors, donors and volunteers. We hope that you enjoyed the menu, beverages, auction, and the entertainment. This effort would not be possible without the dedication of the hardworking board and volunteers - the Australia Day Ball takes several months of planning and a lot of thought and energy goes into making it the Australian American Chamber of Commerce signature Bay Area event.
A huge shout out to our Master of Ceremonies and Auctioneer Gordon Stirling - you could not get more Aussie than Gordo! Thank you also to the talented Jason Gould, who designed and prepared the delicious dinner that included Lamb from South Australia - generously donated by Thomas Foods.
Of course, we could not host such a glamorous occasion without the support of our sponsors who are listed below. Please take the time to support these great companies during the year.
Congratulation to Chevron on receiving the Amb Bill Lane "Spirit of Australia" Award!

Congratulations on a top shelf professional Aussie Club Luncheon at the Fairmont today. The networking amidst the backdrop of San Francisco at the Penthouse dining room to listen to David Thodey was one of the best business luncheons I can remember. The food and service was impeccable. The relaxed atmosphere you created for all the expatriate Australians living in the Bay Area to share with our American business colleagues is very much appreciated.Kind Regards,
Marc Phillips, Managing Partner
Just a quick note to tell you how much I appreciate the effort you and your team went to for our benefit yesterday. The meeting was excellent, both in the caliber of people you invited and the event itself. I enjoyed myself immensely and even made a new friend or two. And thank you for being so kind and for including me in the invitees. I’m looking forward to my next time in SFO and hope we can get together then. In the meantime, let’s stay in touch and eventually I hope to be able to participate more actively in the AACC there.
