Become a member of the Chamber

Supporting and championing business since 1904

When you join the Chamber, we put you at the centre of our business community and ask, ‘How can we help?’.

Our savvy, well-respected team will get to know you and your business, and ensure you’re maximising all opportunities we have on offer to support you on your business journey.

We support & empower a connected business community by…

  • Hosting high-quality events that cut-through industries, sizes and stages to link you in with other likeminded people in our business community. From regular networking opportunities, through to leadership events, our events are a great way to get to know the who, what and how of our business community.
  • Capability support services for all stages of your business journey. From idea to innovation, our team can provide expert guidance and connections to get you where you want to go.
  • Using our channels and working with our stakeholders to champion for change that will best benefit businesses across the Western Bay of Plenty.

How can the Chamber help you?

With our finger on the pulse and our ear to the ground, we’ll act as your gateway to doing business locally. Our team are the people in the know and have valuable connections to put you in touch with the right people and the right information at the right time.

CAPABILITY: Whatever success looks like to you, we’ll help you get there.

Together with our partners and our members, we offer the broadest, most useful business support available to businesses in the Western Bay of Plenty, to help business owners and leaders grow their capability and run a more effective, efficient business. 

CHAMPION: The trusted, respected voice of local business.

When the going gets tough, it’s important to have someone on your side championing for the big issues on your behalf.

As an independent, respected organisation, we have a responsibility to act on behalf of our business community, to ensure the best outcomes that benefit local business.

We have a voice and we’re not afraid to use it to speak up on the issues that matter. Our community trusts us to listen and use our voice to advocate for real change – and we do, regularly.

What does it cost to join?

Membership fees are based on the number of employees in the company (all prices are excluding GST).
