Due to the Covid 19-related social restrictions and state and county guidelines for hosting large events, the Australian American Chamber of Commerce in San Francisco, is now considering hosting a smaller scale, re-imagined Australian Gala event as a Retreat at Summit Skywalker Ranch in Nicasio, CA in February, 2021.
The AACC is proposing a 2021 Australian Retreat at Summit Skywalker Ranch, located in a unique setting hidden in the magnificent hills of Nicasio in Marin county. See description of venue and facilities below.
The proposed Retreat will begin on a Friday, involves an overnight stay and will continue through Saturday afternoon. While the Ranch has 56 guest suites that can accommodate a maximum of 112 attendees, our numbers will be subject to official guidelines, so for now, we are only seeking expressions of interest.
The Retreat is planned for February with February 12-13 or Feb 18-19 under consideration.
Saturday – February 2021

Business Round Tables
We are adding in specific business-oriented round table sessions to take place Friday afternoon, tentatively 3-5:30pm. We wanted the opportunity for guests to connect with one another and to share business ideas. These forums are under development and we would welcome feedback on any topics we could add to our agenda.
(During this period, we envisaged that partners/spouses could use the spa or pool or explore the property, or if so inclined, could join the round tables)
