SACCA was created for its Members by its Members. Our structure and services are largely designed around you. We are confident that you will find the Membership beneficial to your business or organization and hope we can help you achieve your objectives.

Our Members are those who seek to build relationships between the US and South Africa, and more broadly between the Americas and Africa, to access and offer expertise, opportunities, and be part of a community focused on SACCA’s global initiatives and trade missions. As such, our Members are an exclusive group of individuals and organizations that have the power to cause change, positively impacting the transformation of industries and communities on both continents.

Value of Membership:

Introductions:

At the request of Members, the Chamber can make key introductions to other Members, individuals, and organizations in our Network.


Focused Events:

The Chamber is able to help hold and arrange a variety of events around a Member’s mission or focus. Events include: Industry sector focused events, a power breakfast or dinner, a networking lunch, a cocktail hour, or a concert. Many of our Members often have a unique approach or background making them thought leaders in a particular field. Membership allows you to use the Chamber’s resources to showcase these key figure heads, by holding discussions featuring these thought leaders. Often times these events are co-sponsored by SACCA and the Member organization.

At the request of Members, SACCA will announce news, services, events, and opportunities to our Membership and Distribution Lists, currently 5,000+ individuals.

At times, position papers are warranted to serve the community of specific businesses.

Do you have ideas on how South Africa, as a nation, may better take advantage of its membership among the BRIC nations?

SACCA Members will have opportunities to gain unique insights and leverage SACCA’s global initiatives. Advisory and Resource services start at $2,500, unless otherwise specified. Members may use the Chamber’s resources to become “experts” and receive referrals directly from the Chamber’s leadership. The Chamber receives a number of requests each year from its Members, its network and those who are seeking help from the Chamber. For example, many approach the Chamber looking for trade advice or partners, advice on structuring transactions or finding investors and other services. We seek to meet these requests by referring them to our Members.

SACCA Members represent a vital constituency within our Chamber. In the joining process, all Members are screened first and then requested to fill out a corporate profile. From this process, the Chamber will build events and help organize meetings that benefit the industries identified by its Members. Please be as specific as possible during in the joining process and in conversations with the SACCA team.
