Statement of Purpose
Better Business, Better Community
No other organization represents the business community like a Chamber of Commerce.
To CELEBRATE and CHAMPION business success and vitality in Cambridge ; to CONNECT our members to each other, and to OFFER networking opportunities, encourage knowledge sharing; and to support the building of Business CAPABILITY through the delivery of targeted assistance and services.
We focus on creating meaningful connections that help our business community survive and thrive and connect our members with customers, mentors, regional business partners and resources.
We strive to assist the growth of local business through effective promotion and business development opportunities. Our Totally Locally Cambridge brand, Chamber Business Search, Waikato.nxtstep.co.nz and Virtual Cambridge are tangible products in our business toolbox.
Chambers have long been the face of, and advocates for, business but as any chamber professional knows, they do a lot more in the community than just business. Chambers serve as connectors for their community in common activities.
With a focus on advocacy toward a healthy economy and aligning business, council and government, we can provide a voice for initiatives relevant to our members. Covid-19 saw a number of agencies including Te Waka and the Chambers of Commerce working closely together in support of our business community.
We shared resources and insights, collaborated on information and data to enhance the support chain, information, advocacy and voice of the Waikato business sector.
We continue this journey during the economic recovery of our region.
