2011/2012 Membership The AACC Board of Directors and staff are delighted to announce the continued growth of sponsor members and acknowledge the outstanding support it receives from new and returning members. Our thanks to BHP Billiton Petroleum for once again supporting the Chamber as 2011 Host Sponsor. Thank you to our Platinum sponsors Chevron, as presenting sponsor of the 2011 Energy Conference, Qantas, and our Premium sponsors Apache and ExxonMobil. Thank you to our Gold sponsors CMS/Creative Marketing Services, ConocoPhillips, eEvents Group, Ernst & Young, Frosh Travel, Macquarie Energy, Rathbone Wine Group, and Worley Parsons. Silver and Bronze members included American Airlines, AMOG Consulting, Atwood Oceanics, Corporate Montage, Geokinetics, PKF Texas, Petrosys, Portfolio Decisions, Schlumberger, Vinson & Elkins, Woodside Energy USA, and WrightWay Presentations. What an impressive list which only continues to grow! The recognizable list of company names mentioned is part of the membership committee’s development strategy and this committee continues to reach out to those in the community interested in furthering relations between the US and Australia. Since its formation in 1988 the AACC has had the ability to increase and expand through the continuous support of Sponsor, Corporate and Individual members. Today we have the strongest support by companies in the energy, financial, aviation and food/wine sector, which in the last three years have increased from 17 to 39 sponsor memberships! This achievement has also been possible by the professionals and expatriates that strengthen our partnerships in the international businesses community. The Australian American Chamber of Commerce appreciates your collaboration and looks forward to maintaining your future support. Australia Week 2011 Houston’s G’Day USA program continues to grow each year and our Australia Week of promotion has become 11 days full of exciting events attracting a national and international audience! These events could not take place if it were not for the volunteers and committees and the countless hours given to make it the success it is, and to enable the Chamber to continue to grow this series of events making Houston one of the foremost cities taking part in the G’Day program. This year the AACC Gala raffle and auction raised $55,000 which was donated to the AACC local charity of choice, Project Joy and Hope. AACC has supported this local non-profit for the past four years raising close to $150,000! Sundowner - the monthly Sundowner is a networking social event held on the second Thursday of the month. This event serves as a networking opportunity for all members to meet new people, reconnect with past connections and to share your expertise. Down Under Sounds - this event features a wide selection of Australian Bands who showcase at SXSW in Austin.

ANZAC Day - the memorial service is held each year in Bear Creek Park and is organized by TANZOT in conjunction with AACC. President Mark Hawley lays a wreath on behalf of the AACC. The memorial service is followed by a family picnic/BBQ.

OTC Perth Delegation Dinner - this dinner is held each year to welcome a delegation from Perth, Australia through AMCHAM and is a great opportunity for networking and creating new business opportunities.

Speaker Series - the first annual Stars of Australia Speaker Series featured Dr. Peter Hartley, a 2011 recipient, who gave an insightful look into the real inter-relations of energy security and climate policy. We look forward to expanding this program in 2012. Australia Short Film Festival – with great films provided by Susan Talbot and the Asia Society NY this event is always a sold out fun evening. Sister City - for the past 28 years, Perth has been a member of The Sister Cities of Houston which creates and maintains common interests between the two cities. The association has built city-to-city relationships around the world, especially in the commercial, educational and humanitarian sectors.
