The Wairarapa Chamber of Commerce, supporting the local business community

Why Do Top Performing Businesses
Join The Wairarapa Chamber Of Commerce?

Having personally worked with high-flying business owners, small business owners, salespeople and self-employed professionals in the Wairarapa over the past 5 years, I think I have a pretty good understanding of why chamber membership works so well for business owners, and why you might want to be connected. There are 14 reasons:

1. Grow their business
2. Being Motivated
3. Collaboration
4. Having a strong voice
5. Information
6. Networking
7. Opportunities
8. Mentoring
9. Business Planning Support
10. Focus
11. A HUB for like minded business people
12. Training opportunities
13. Fantastic & fun events
14. Member Benefits

Different people have different needs at different times in their lives, but we find most business owners share all 14 of these to varying degrees.

#2 Motivation

The Wairarapa Chamber is all about knowing where you want to go, what you can offer and who you should be connect with. Great businesses are built on trust and knowledge; People are genuinely interested! BUT they need to meet you first though! Being in business can be the best and worst experience in the world.

We all have bad days; some more than others, don’t get too caught up in the negative! The Wairarapa Chamber of Commerce is a place to come in and get perspective here to give you people to talk to and to listen.

#3 Collaboration

Frequently, through our members and our knowledge of the area and the partners we have on board we are able to offer opportunities that ensure the right businesses get approached and connected - we get businesses working together.

#4 A Voice

Most importantly we offer a voice for business! The more members we have the louder our voice becomes both locally and nationally!

By supporting each other and maintaining a positive attitude we believe the Wairarapa can become ‘the’ place to do business – this is ultimately our goal!
