THE BENEFITS OF BECOMING A WAIKATO CHAMBER OF COMMERCE MEMBER
NETWORKING & EVENTS
We hold over 50 events a year for our members to meet, connect and to ultimately build long-lasting relationships with other businesses in the Waikato. Check out our calendar to see what is coming up and check back regularly as more get added each month.
The membership portal is your point of access to message other members directly, promote job vacancies, member deals and your own events. It is also where you update your directory listing which will help your business be found more easily in Google searches.
As a Chamber member, you can promote your business to potential customers nationally and internationally. Our member-only directory proudly promotes your business to raise your profile and help you find more clients. We work together to keep the Waikato the best place for businesses and people to thrive.
Gain access to exclusive discounts on a range of products and services from our Alliance Partners and other Chamber members. In return, offer your own discounts to increase your brand awareness.
Let your message reach a database of over 4,000 people by advertising with your own EDM, or by being featured in our fortnightly newsletter! You can also advertise on our website. Chamber members receive a discount on all advertising. Check out the options here.
Advocacy is a key activity undertaken by the Chamber that aims to influence decisions within our political, economic and social institutions in order to improve the opportunity for business in the Waikato to flourish.
B2B ONLINE GROUPS
The purpose of these groups on LinkedIn and Facebook is for members to interact with each other – they're like a virtual networking platform where you can catch up, share deals for other members, provide recommendations and more.
The Waikato Chamber can authorise your documentation for exporting both manually and electronically at reduced costs. Find out more here.
