AmCham Bahamas was established in 2019 and currently has 23 member companies. Our members are American and Bahamian firms and businesses who are interested in pursuing and promoting business opportunities between the two countries. Through oversite and direction from the Board of Directors, various committees organize activities, such as breakfasts, luncheons, dinners, happy hours, seminars and conferences to educate our members, assist in networking, and represent the business community’s interests in developing public policy.

Mission
