Membership in an AHK provides companies with a wide
and varied range of attractive services and benefits that
are valuable to businesses of all sizes.
The most important
benefit is provided by the unique network at the disposal of
the AHKs, through which they are well connected with bu-
siness people and politicians both locally and in Germany.
This helps members make new contacts and meet crucial
business partners and also gain access to exclusive events
and services. They can also actively participate in and con-
tribute to committees and special working groups with
their expertise and ideas. Opinion surveys among members
are also an important form of participation that help the
AHK identify and represent the expectations and concerns
of the business community.
The membership total of nearly 47,000 in the world-wide
AHK network confirms that even in this era of increasing
digital communication and the use of social media, face-
to-face meetings and personal interaction remain essential
and indispensable for businesses.
