There's a number of interesting courses and events promoted in this edition and we hope to continue bringing you this sort of thing.
We are a not-for-profit volunteer-based body dedicated to helping to create wealth and employment in Kapiti via business.
The new Chamber Board is taking shape, and we have adopted a 'portfolio' approach aimed at ensuring (as much as possible) that all the major business segments in Kapiti are represented and that Board members are willing to take an active role. Exciting times and we hope to be able to make an announcement in the next week or two.
A key event in April is the launch of the 2013 Electra Kapiti Horowhenua Business Awards. There is a major revamp to the awards line-up and process this year to make entering easier and better. Come to the free information evenings – more details below – it could be the best decision that you make ON your business in 2013!
