This year, in celebration of the Chamber’s record membership of 85% growth in the last 18 months, the Chamber wishes to reward its members and friends with a generous package to commemorate the record year of membership level, strongest ever financial position, engagement, activity, and giving back to the country and community through CSR.

An adult early bird ticket costing $25, includes one set barbeque of burger and fries, two oysters from Ostra Fine Foods, one taco from Itcate, one glass of Lillet wine, free flow beer, Budweiser and Corona, and soft drinks from Coca-Cola. A child ticket for $10 includes one barbeque set of burgers and fries, one Quesadilla, Krispy Kreme donuts, Swensen Ice Cream cone, and free-flow soft drink.
The setting is the wonderful DIB Club on Koh Pich (Diamond Island) with the most famous swimming pool in Phnom Penh. There will also be a music festival featuring three bands, Joe & The Jumping Jacks, Three Country Drunks, and Son Sabor Trio.
AmCham President Anthony Galliano commented: “This is not only a celebration of the traditional American Independence day, which we wish to share our culture with our membership and friends but also of the incredible growth and achievements of the Chamber. We want to share the rewards of the past year by making this an incredible day for all, in the true spirit of American generosity.
We invite our members and friends to relax and enjoy the green and spacious DIB Club and its fantastic swimming pool, the fantastic music arranged for the day, and the amazing variety of traditional American food, seafood, Mexican food, and free-flow beer and soft drinks. It promises to be a wonderful day for all. Please join us for our annual celebration.”
AmCham hits record membership
has hit a record membership number of 215 paid-up companies announcing the milestone at its monthly real-estate and construction industry night.
The chamber offers six membership options for companies ranging from Platinum to Start-Up packages providing a range of benefits from event participation, joining committees, and voting rights.
While all members must demonstrate an American connection this can be through American customers, suppliers, employees, or partners, effectively all open sources and nationalities are welcome. Unlike the European Chamber of Commerce in Cambodia all non-American-owned companies are also eligible to vote in the annual elections.
Founded in 1996, AmCham is an independent non-profit membership organization of both American and Cambodian companies that share a connection to American commerce. Our role is to support our Members’ growth and success.
AmCham businesses play an important role in the Kingdom’s story of economic development and are a leading voice in Cambodia’s international business community.
