George Business Chamber was established in 2002 when the George Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the George Sakekamer amalgamated and became the George Business Chamber. In 2015, the George Business Chamber NPC Southern Cape was formally registered as a Non-Profit Company.
The primary purpose of the Chamber is to facilitate the unlocking of business opportunities for all businesses by supporting and developing them through networking events and support to ensure sustainable growth. The vision of the George Business Chamber is to promote and cultivate an inclusive economy thereby not excluding any business sector e.g. informal, township-, small and medium enterprises, and Corporates within the wider business community of the George Municipal area.
We conduct our business and interactions with associates and affiliates in an ethical manner and take a strong stand against non-ethical behaviour. We endeavour to create and maintain an enabling environment where people and businesses can grow thus contributing to the overall economic growth of our region and ultimately that of the country.
The George Business Chamber NPC Southern Cape is lead and governed by an affiliate elected Board consisting of 5 board members, 8 Executive committee members, 5 co-opted members and 2 full-time employees of which one is the CEO.
