3. Do I need to be a US Citizen, or employed by an US based company to be a member of AmCham HK?

AmCham is an American chamber of international characteristics. It is not required that you hold a US citizenship or be a US based company to join AmCham. In fact, a large percentage of our Chamber are UK, local, European, or Chinese based. We welcome all nationalities to foster a community with a wide range of experiences.

4. Does a corporate membership mean everyone in my company is an AmCham Member?

No. one of the main benefits of holding a corporate membership on top of company exposure is that it allows the adding of Additional Members for a vastly reduced price. Corporate accounts, however, still belong to only one single holder until AMs are purchased.

Yes. Download the transfer form from our website and fill in the new member’s details. There is a small processing for transfers during a membership period.
