Share in the success strategies of other businesses in the Chamber's network


One of the first things you learn in business is you just can’t do it all on your own.

When you’re not sure those in authority entirely understand how tough it is out there, you need a voice and an interpreter.

When a new issue comes up, you need access to fellow business people and down-to-earth business wisdom.

When you have a product or service to promote, you need a market to trade with.


Joining the Chamber can give you all this and more. We’re here to inspire and influence business vitality and to provide the tools to make your company successful.

For the past 150 years, the Chamber of Commerce has been behind the success stories of many Hawkes Bay businesses. 

Why not join them now, so you can share their success strategies.
