Biographical history

The Associated Chambers of Commerce of the Commonwealth of Australia formed in 1901 bringing together the Chambers of Commerce which had earlier been established in Adelaide (1839), Sydney, Melbourne and Hobart (1851), Brisbane (1869), and Perth (1890). The name was changed to the Associated Chambers of Commerce of Australia in 1939 and a federal office established in Canberra in 1941 (previously the location had alternated between the Sydney and Melbourne Chambers). In 1972 the name changed to the Australian Chamber of Commerce and then in 1992 it merged with the Confederation of Australian Industry to form the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
