About Us

About Us

The BNCC is a not for profit organisation with the overall vision of "Building a Business Community to Support Each Other". Our geographic region is the Brisbane North area centred around Chermside.

We are members of both the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Australian Chamber) and the Chamber of Commerce and Industry Queensland (CCIQ). We are also affiliated to the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) which has over 1400 Chambers worldwide.

As a not for profit organisation, our Executive Committee are all volunteers and donate their time and efforts because they are passionate about helping to develop business on the Brisbane Northside. The only paid positions are the secretariat and website administrator who are employed for a few hours each month to assist in the administrative function and to organise the event marketing and bookings.

After we met at BNCC networking and exchanged business cards, Adrian Toscano from Tosca Industries called me out of the blue to ask if we had any clients with truck licences that were looking for employment. Within two days, one of my wonderful clients was interviewed. The next day he started employment for Adrian's company.  This opportunity has had a massive impact on my client's life. His mental health has changed for the better and he came in personally to thank me. It goes to show how a simple exchange of business cards can make all the difference!
Adrian and I are now in regular contact for any future opportunities. If anyone is considering becoming a member of BNCC, I would highly recommend it.

Chamber events are full of genuine people wanting to make meaningful and long-lasting business connections. More importantly, I’ve now had numerous follow-up meetings with people I’ve met through the chamber and am pleased to report we have signed up several new stations sponsors as a result.

The best thing is, when all is said and done, BNCC is a great place for doing business. Some of my longest and most valued clients have emerged from the trusting relationships I’ve developed through the chamber.

Joining the chamber has been one of the best decisions I’ve made since I started my business in 2016. There is tremendous value in being able to meet regularly with like-minded business people. Not only have I enjoyed the opportunity to win new work through the chamber but its extensive network of contacts has provided me with the support and answers I’ve needed to the myriad questions faced by a new business owner. In just a few short months I’ve already realised the value of my annual membership and I would encourage anyone in business on the Northside to make the most of this great network.

I've really enjoyed building a network within the BNCC. Every fortnight I attend the events and build new relationships within a trustworthy and talented group of people. I've already recommended the BNCC to others, and will continue to do so in the future.
