Committed to business growth

Cumberland Business Chamber is committed to business growth. We provide opportunities for company owners and key decision makers to meet and encourage each other, discuss ideas, receive new business building knowledge, source new suppliers and customers, and provide feedback on challenges they are facing which the Chamber can then present to government or industry associations on their behalf.

We are strong advocates for “Support Australian Industry. Buy Australian Products.”
