A forward-thinking, innovative business environment requires strong leadership like yours.

To ensure that our region has the business environment to stimulate business growth and to help our region develop a strong sustainable economy for now and into the future, the Wairarapa Chamber of Commerce is inviting key influential business leaders to be part of the Wairarapa Business Leaders Network.

You have an opportunity to be involved in the important conversations that shape our region’s business environment.

This group works in partnership with the Wairarapa Chamber of Commerce to help shape the business environment in our region and is made up of committed leaders who are at the forefront of the important conversations taking place with our region’s strategic stakeholders.

Stakeholders such as local and regional government representatives, the Wellington Regional Economic Development Agency (WREDA), New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA), Wairarapa Water, Local Government Commission (LGC), Accelerate Wairarapa, as well as national government agencies.

You have the chance to ask the hard questions directly to decision makers or question New Zealand’s leaders and influential commentators.

Members of the Leaders Network also have an exclusive opportunity to meet one-on-one with visiting guest speakers who present at Wairarapa Chamber of Commerce events.

Plus you become a Wairarapa Chamber of Commerce supporting partner.

You and your organisation will be involved in helping to support and maintain a vital voice for business in Wairarapa.
