HISTORY OF THE CHAMBER MOVEMENT
The Chamber movement started more than 400 years ago originating in Marseilles, France from Royal decree
Business people were tired of the Government dictating to them and therefore formed an independent organisation called the Chamber of Commerce
Chambers of Commerce specifically unifies businesses with the aim of speaking with one voice
The Ekurhuleni North Chamber of Commerce and Industry has been in existence since 1950 and is one of the oldest Chambers in South Africa and affiliated to the South African Chamber of Commerce & Industry (SACCI)
There are Chambers of Commerce in almost every city throughout the world
THE SOUTH AFRICAN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE AND INDUSTRY (SACCI)
SACCI remains the most broadly based representative national business body, not only in South Africa, but in Southern Africa, focusing primarily on national and international issues
SACCI gives Chamber members national access and credibility via BUSA and Nedlac as well as the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC)
As the “Voice of Business” SACCI assists its members by preparing and submitting policy positions on business related issues to government. i.e. International Trade, Taxation, Economic Affairs, Labour, Company Wellness, Education & Training, Information Technology, SADC, NEPAD, Small Business, Transport and Regulatory Affairs. SACCI also interacts with many other agencies on business issues
WHY every business person should become a member of our Chamber of Commerce?
Chambers have an important status, both within the country as well as internationally
It is therefore possible for the Chamber of Commerce to source information which would be difficult for an individual business person or trader to obtain on their own.
We pride ourselves on holding presentations on the very latest topics pertinent to the country and business, all information which will affect your bottom line.
