AmCham NZ and why you should join.
"As being a member of the NZ chapter of the American Chamber of Commerce for over 7 years, I cannot speak highly enough about the outstanding opportunities that AmCham provides. From excellent business referrals through to amazing networking opportunities not just in NZ but around the world with the 110 AmCham chapters, the membership has everything you need to assist your company with its business growth and exposure.
The networking events and key note speakers that are offered to the membership are second to none in this market, with a constant array of outstanding business leaders that are current and offer invaluable insights into their working environment.
As a cloud based US centric US ExPat tax service, we opened offices in Sydney and Bangkok in 2015 and AmCham played its part in that with assisting in getting our brand exposed, opening the various multi layer networks and ensuring ongoing opportunities to network through their membership, I just cannot thank AmCham enough.
The fact that we are now members of THREE AmChams, shows just how valuable we think the American Chamber of Commerce is to our business growth. Join TODAY, you will not be disappointed". Tony Eaton, Director: Business Development/ Client Relations, US Global Tax Limited www.usglobaltax.com
“We have been involved over the last twelve months in establishing a premium New Zealand wine promotion and marketing operation in the United States. In effect we have been dealing with fifty different countries as the regulatory barriers are a virtual minefield. The assistance of Amcham with introductions to their member network has been invaluable when trying to find the right people in the right place at the right time. Certainly a great return on our membership investment.”

Our law firm owes so much of our growth and success to AmCham NZ. As the first general practice US law firm to set up shop in New Zealand, it was essential that we join AmCham NZ to meet and engage with others conducting business between the US and New Zealand. From the moment we joined in 2012, we were welcomed into a community of friendly, like-minded professionals. The networking opportunities and the business referrals that we have benefited from through AmCham NZ are unparalleled given the nature of our business being focused on Kiwi businesses with commercial interests in the United States. Additionally, the opportunities to engage with the New Zealand community through our participation in various AmCham NZ-hosted events as presenters and also as audience members has been very educational and inspiring. We are very proud members of the organization and plan to remain actively engaged just so that we can try give back as much as the organization has given to us! Thank you AmCham NZ for all that you do to promote US-NZ trade relations and all that you have done, and continue to do for us!

“Noel Group is a Houston-based private equity company with a growing portfolio of ‘smart capital’ investments in NZ Inc. Our Houston Launch Pad initiative is designed to assist businesses to quickly establish a beachhead in the Houston market, and as a gateway to Texas and the US. Joining AmCham NZ was a ‘no brainer’ strategy-wise and has proved to be incredible value from day one. The genuine interest and level of support from Mike and the team for what we are trying to achieve has been a real eye-opener and we simply can’t thank them enough. Events are frequent and almost always relevant to our commercial objectives. Introductions and connections are at the highest level and strategically right on the mark.
I have no hesitation in highly recommending AmCham to anyone in New Zealand looking to do business in the US. Our membership renewal is a budget item that will receive automatic approval year after year!”
