Committee Overview

Helmed and formed by our most active members, Chamber committees are a key way for members to contribute to their Chamber’s continued relevance and success. The old adage “you get out what you put in” applies. The more active members are, the greater sense of value they derive from their membership and the greater value they bring to their Chamber.

SICC has 10 business committees covering a broad range of industries and business concerns. Committees inform, expand knowledge, networks and personal effectiveness. They are the seed bed for the Chamber’s advocacy work which is always designed to benefit all members. Narrow interests are not the focus.

Contact us and join the committee which is best aligned to your industry and/or to your interests. Thank you for your views, time and consistent participation and for serving your Chamber and the wider business community.

Our Committees

SICC’s cross-industry and industry-specific committees continue to be a focal engagement platform for members. It is through these committees that SICC drives substantive discussions on topics and issues that impact businesses. The committees also facilitate cross-industry sharing of knowledge and ideas, extend members’ network and enable them to reach out to the business community and the government.
