Dear Members and Friends

  • If
    you’re interested in Industrial Parks, at 9am tomorrow (Friday), reps will
    come and speak to AusCham in our Hanoi and HCMC offices. All welcome.
    Please register your interest by emailing us.
  • Friday,
    8 August will be Sundowners in Danang / Hoi An with the “Tourism
    Operators” theme. Why not plan a weekend away to coincide with this
    event??
  • 13
    August in Hanoi, (Member) CPA Australia’s Chief Operating Officer will
    speak at our Business Briefing. In October, CPA Australia’s Chief
    Financial Officer will address a Business Briefing in HCMC.
  • Today
    is the deadline for nominating for one of the Working Groups proposed by
    President, Tareq Muhmood. Please apply now if you’re keen and interested.
  • Don’t
    forget, SME Memberships are available for those companies with fewer than
    20 staff. Also, all memberships are now valid for 12 months (rather than
    calendar years).
  • This
    weekend, AusCham’s HCMC staff shall join a weekend away with VGAC members
    to Vung Tau. AusCham is keen to develop the relationship with Vietnamese
    who have studied in Australia. It’s time to celebrate those business
    people and officials with an Australian education!
  • I
    will be in Hanoi for the week commencing 11 August. Let me know if I can
    meet you.
  • I
    will be in Melbourne for the week commencing 18 August (my personal
    expense). Let me know if you’re an “AusCham Alumni” (formerly an AusCham
    member who has returned to Australia) and want to meet. Also, while I am
    in Melbourne, does anyone have any contacts who may be useful for our
    Melbourne Cup on Derby Day event (Saturday 1 November, HCMC)?
  • Would
    you like to see a Black Eyed Pea at Soul Academy (AusCham Member) next
    Tuesday in HCMC? Soul Academy has made 30 complimentary vouchers available
    for AusCham Members (membership card must be produced). Click here for details.

For all AusCham events, to
facilitate processing of applications and payments, could you please show your
membership card.

As you can see from the snippet of
information above, AusCham is feeling increasingly like a genuinely National
Chamber.

It’s your Chamber. Get involved!
