The nine business organisations that are founding members of the SADC Business Forum are SACAU, Association of SADC Chambers of Commerce, Federation of Eastern & Southern African Road Transport Associations, Mining Industry Associations of Southern Africa, Southern African Enterprise Network, Southern African Railways Associations, SADC Bankers Association, SADC Employers Group and Small Enterprise Promotion Advisory Council.

Meanwhile, the following board members were elected at the 2004 AGM to lead SACAU. These are: Mr Ajay Vashee of Zambia National Farmers Union (President), Mr Peter Rammutla of the National African Farmers Union of South Africa (Vice President), Mr Doug Taylor-Freeme of the Commercial Farmers Union of Zimbabwe (Vice President), Mr Silas Hungwe of the Zimbabwe Farmers Union (Board member) and Mr Bully Botma of Agri SA (Board member).

The next SACAU AGM will be held in South Africa on 15 - 17 March 2006.
