You are invited to become a member of our dynamic and growing network.
We provide opportunities to make great business connections, regularly share actionable business intelligence and relevant information, and advocate on behalf of businesses and organizations working and investing in Tanzania.
High Powered Business Connections
AmCham-TZ is one of the first places for people seeking to invest, or trade in goods and services, or are looking for references on specific businesses in Tanzania. People turn to our website for information, and a listing on our website gets attention. Cost-effective marketing opportunities exist through the Chamber’s events, programs, Web site, sponsorships and in-house publications. Members are always the first to be referred. AmCham-TZ membership proudly communicates to the world that you provide superior customer service and products. Membership extends credibility and implies that you are trustworthy, involved in your community and care about your customers. Our regular networking events are becoming well-known as the best way to make great business connections in Tanzania.
In addition to our networking events, we hold interesting and informative Panel Discussions and Breakfast Briefings that allow people to learn about new opportunities and share information about their work. We regularly share relevant information with our membership.
Public Policy Advocacy
We engage in advocacy efforts with the Tanzanian and U.S. governments on our members’ behalf. From time to time we hold Business Roundtables inviting relevant stakeholders to participate in a free-wheeling open discussion on a specific issue. Our current policy direction is summarized as working to effect transparency in taxation, working towards a more efficient regulatory environment, ending the skills gap by streamlining HR policies, and issues regarding local ownership of businesses investing and working in Tanzania. AmCham-TZ is a member of, and works closely with, the Tanzanian Private Sector Foundation (TPSF) in our advocacy on behalf of the private sector.
What it takes
A conversation and your membership dues. We avoid a long application process in favor of a frank conversation. We want to know what you’d like to get out of AmCham membership and how we can assist your enterprise. After that, you simply pay your yearly membership dues, and your membership is complete. (See membership levels and fee schedule here.)
We’re working every day to make AmCham-TZ the strongest professional network in Tanzania. Your membership allows you to be part of that. Let us know if you have any questions about AmCham, its activities, and ways we can add value to your work. We hope to welcome you on board and look forward to hearing from you soon.
