Promote and Empower

A vision for an independent business community that creates economic prosperity

The Potchefstroom Chamber of Commerce is an institution that aims to facilitate networking between organisations in the area and the mobilisation of knowledge to promote relationships between businesses and people in order to create economic prosperity for all in our area

We aspire to organise events that our members can attend to learn more about commercial themes and create the opportunity to network with each other and with other leaders in their industry in order to promote their own business.

We are a non-profit association with the main objective to empower our members and make our town a better place by giving each member and citizen the opportunity to contribute towards the community in their own way and to uplift Potchefstroom.

We are a group of people who work together to help promote each other.

The Chamber of Commerce has two main goals, to promote and empower its members. First, we want all our members to connect as a business community. We organise events that help our members learn more about the business world and we give our members the opportunity to build up a strong network that can help their business succeed. With this network, they can promote their business and be assured of support. Secondly, we want to empower our members. We want to make our town a better place by giving our members the opportunity to give back in their own way. We are a non-profit association, so everything we do is to help our members and the community.

Meet our Board of Management

The board management of Potchefstroom Chamber of Commerce consists of reputable businessmen and -women in the community. They are voted to be part of the management and bears a great responsibility in keeping our Chamber of Commerce the leading and successful association that it is today. Apart from this responsibility, the Potchefstroom area is close to their hearts and they are diligent in keeping our town and the surroundings one of the most beautiful and culturally rich in South Africa. The people of Potchefstroom are the first responsibility to all the management members, and they will work effortlessly to empower and promote them.
