Welcome to the Samford & Districts Chamber of Commerce
The Samford Chamber of Commerce is a not for profit organisation with the overall vision of “Building a Business Community to Support Each Other”. We are a local Chamber of Commerce that has a strong history of supporting the wider Samford Valley business community.
The Samford Chamber is affiliated with the Combined Chambers of Commerce & Industry Queensland (CCIQ) and provides advocacy and support for local business owners and their staff. The Samford Chamber is associated with the Moreton Bay Regional Council and supports their Regional Economic Development Strategy. This also means being a strong supporter of Council’s membership of the Qld Government’s Small Business Friendly Councils initiative.
As a not for profit organisation, our Executive Committee are all volunteers and donate their time and efforts because they are passionate about helping to develop business in Samford.
To help local business grow, Samford Chamber of Commerce organises different events throughout the year.
We welcome members, guests and visitors to all our events
The Samford Chamber holds regular Networking Breakfast meetings on the 2nd Wednesday of each month from February to November each year at the Samford Community HUB facility located within the Samford Parklands, just north of the Samford Village Business Precinct.
The breakfast networking meeting format alternates between invited Keynote Guest Speakers and “Meet & Greet the Locals” events which feature an on-site Mobile Coffee Van and accompanying locally made patisserie Continental Breakfast.
Visitors are welcome to attend by registering through the Chamber website. The morning gets under way at 6.45am with a “KickStarter” coffee (or two) followed by a 7.00.am Meeting Start and all finished by 8.30am.
