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. 

It means advancing the spirit of Australia and sense of fairness, fun and adventure that we share with like-minded people in the US and throughout the world. 

We don’t take ourselves too seriously, yet are driven to succeed. We fervently believe in a balance between work and play, business and pleasure, financial and social endeavours.

Fun and Fairness are Paramount.

Anyone who feels the same, and shares our approach to life (both business and social) would enjoy attending our events and becoming a fellow member. Benefits are myriad, and include discounts, updates, newsletters and the general comradery and tight connections of the Australian American community here in the Bay Area (and by extension - throughout the world)!

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
Arafura Ventures

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.

 

Take care,

Deborah Clifton CEO, TarrenPoint
