The Townsville Chamber of Commerce

A Chamber of Commerce is a form of business network, with local businesses getting together to further their interest.

There are Chambers of Commerce all over the world and while we are all independent and different from one another, we all share the same goal:  to improve the local business environment.

The Townsville Chamber has been in existence for 135 years and provides its members with networking and promotion opportunities and information to improve their business.

As the independent voice of business in Townsville, the Chamber also advocates on a range of issues to advance the interest of our members and the broad business community regarding regional opportunities and community affairs.

 Have you met the CPC team?

You may have seen some new shirts and banner around town and wondered what the CPC is all about. As the newly re-branded Young Chamber we have a new focus on supporting future generations of business. With two main objectives – skills initiative and creating commerce – we have a passion for promoting good business and developing skills for the next generation of leaders and entrepreneurs, as well as creating commerce opportunities for our members through a range of projects.

 What does this mean for you?

Our committee includes an array of industry skills connecting members and the community to innovative business promotion. We are available for our ever-successful Cash Mobs, or Project Awareness, or even just for a brain-storming session to provide some new ideas for you to connect to customers.
