AMERICAN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE IN MOROCCO
The American Chamber of Commerce in Morocco (AmCham Morocco) is a non-profit, non government organization which represents American and Moroccan businesses and individuals.
The chamber's mission is to provide support to businesses, Moroccan and American, in expanding their opportunities in each market through advocacy, information, networking and business support services.
AmCham was established in 1966 by a group of Moroccan and American businesses under the auspices of the US Chamber of Commerce in Washington, D.C.
AmCham membership totals 285 members, of which 55% are Moroccan, 40% American, and 5% other nationalities. Members support AmCham operations through annual dues (DH 6 000 per year for the annual fee and DH 10 000 for the entrance fee); the Chamber receives no governmental, outside financial support, or subsidies.
The Chamber is governed by an elected Board, comprised of the presidents of leading U.S. companies established in Morocco and of Moroccan companies doing business with the U.S.
The Chamber's annual workload is accomplished through four standing committees with different focuses: Commerce and Industry, Corporate Social Responsibility, Education, and Events.
AmCham Morocco has four full time staff that manages the day-to-day operations of the central office, coordinates events and publications, handles information requests, processes membership applications, and performs specialized research.
