Postponed - President's Lunch & Business Awards 

Given the current situation with COVID-19 and the latest social distancing precautionary measures put in place by the Ministry of Health we have made the difficult decision to postpone our annual President’s Lunch and Business awards which had been scheduled for June 19.


Postponed - ANZ Australia Day Ball 2020 

As you’re aware the situation with the Coronavirus is continuing to develop including the recent declaration from the World Health Organisation (WHO) of a public health emergency of global concern.


Based on this news and the evolving situation, the AustCham board has made the difficult decision to postpone our 2020 Australia Day Ball, with a future date yet to be determined. This is not a decision that has been made lightly and we understand many will share our disappointment. We seek your understanding as the wellbeing of our guests and members is our primary concern. 


The Ball is our single largest fundraising event of the year and this year we were also using it as a means to raise funds for those affected by the recent bushfires in Australia. However, given the current circumstances we feel it is the responsible course of action for the Chamber to take.


We look forward to your support once we reschedule the event.
