About the Chamber

Your Business, Our Business

Our mission is to empower, connect and advocate for sustainable business growth across the Denmark region, by providing our member businesses with advocacy, networking, promotion and business support.

Our Story

The Denmark Chamber of Commerce was officially incorporated in 1989. It was created to help retain public and private expenditure amongst local businesses, particularly in relation to the work of the Shire of Denmark.

To ensure the organisation was financially sustainable, the local Denmark Business and Community Directory was developed in 1992.  In 2019, the directory is now also online. 

The Denmark Chamber of Commerce vision and strategy is based on the premise that the economic growth of Denmark is best served by the growth of the small – medium enterprise sector seeking lifestyle choices and investing in innovative economic development that supports our natural and social environment.

We employ three part time staff and currently have a membership base of 381 businesses from around the district.

 

As a Chamber, we:

Facilitate and support economic development and year round trade to Denmark and the region.

Value and maintain our independent voice.

Seek to build the capacity and resilience of our local businesses so they can continue to enhance the quality of life of their families and the broader community
