Dear Member,
 
Firstly thank you for your continued support of AusCham.
 
AusCham would like to offer stronger engagement opportunities for our Members.
 
With this in mind, we are looking for members to volunteer to participate in any of the below “Working Groups”.   We expect the Groups to meet bi-monthly to oversee and contribute to the overall development of AusCham.
 
We have left one Group ‘untitled’ as we would like to receive your suggestions on any other topics that are relevant to you and your business.
 
The Working Groups we are looking for volunteers are:
 
a) Events
This covers Sundowners, Golf Scramble, Annual Ball, guest speakers etc.
 
b) Advocacy
Driving AusCham’s role in representing our members’ interests at various forums and in providing feedback to the government and back to the members.
 
c) Strategic Advisory
Reviewing AusCham’s direction in ensuring a sustainable and successful Chamber. For example, how do we target the Alumni and younger members, updating the Charter etc.
 
d)  Real Estate
Given our experience and track record in this area which includes the annual Real Estate Symposiums (Hanoi 9 September and HCMC 11 September) – how else can we leverage this track record?
 
e)  The ‘untitled’ Group that Members can suggest a subject
Is there a topic / subject that you wish AusCham can develop a strength in?  Please let us know what this is and we will see if we get a common response from across the membership.
 
The benefits to members volunteering to serve on a Work Group include:
•          Widening your own network
•          Gaining a better understanding of the Chamber
•          Future opportunities to be considered for Board positions
Please register your interest to join any of the above Working Groups by emailing Phil Johns on execdirector@auschamvn.org by 25th July 2014.
 
We really hope this helps get some of our enthusiastic members involved in the running of AusCham.
 
Best regards,
 
Tareq
