Our Governance

The Chamber of Commerce and Industry Western Australia (CCIWA) operates as a company limited by guarantee. This came into effect on 11 January 2019, following approval by Members at an Extraordinary General Meeting held on 28 June 2018.

The change in status means that CCIWA is now incorporated under the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) rather than the State legislation covering incorporated associations.

As such, the organisation is now referred to as Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Western Australia Limited.

As a result of the change the Board holds legal responsibility for all of CCIWA’s activities, including policy positions.


Some of the most respected and passionate Western Australian business figures guide CCIWA as it strives to make it easier to do business in the west.

At CCIWA we ensure we have reputable and accountable people – leading and within the organisation – so we can provide the highest level of influence, service and support to our Members and the business community.

General Council and Board of Directors give their time to benefit commerce and industry in Western Australia.

Ray Sputore, Strategic Development Executive at Decmil Australia, serves as the President of the Council and the Chairperson of the Board.
