Your business is our community

About the BGCCI

The Bunbury Geographe Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BGCCI) was established in 1897 and today is a modern, progressive organisation dedicated to supporting local business activities and working with the whole community to develop the economic growth of the region.

As the “champion of the business community”, the Chamber deals with a vast range of issues ranging from day-to-day business opportunities/problems through to regional infrastructure and community affairs.

Strength lies in numbers and the BGCCI, with approximately 450 members, is recognised as the lead business agency in the South West Region of Western Australia. BGCCI is a member of Regional Chambers of Commerce and Industry representing approximately 10,000 businesses across regional Western Australia.

Through our investment in the ‘One of Many Membership’ with Chambers of Commerce and Industry WA (CCIWA), our members also benefit directly with access to the tools, services and support provided by CCIWA.

The BGCCI is a strictly apolitical body that is financially independent and provides members with the opportunity to enhance their interests, network for profit and improve the prosperity of our community.
