Kia ora koutou NZRise members.  It’s AGM time of year, and we will be holding our AGM on Tuesday June 11th at 5pm.


NZRise Annual General Meeting

Tuesday June 11, 2019, 5pm.

Catalyst IT, Wellington.

RSVP here.


Thank you, Don.

After co-founding NZRise and 9 years as Co-Chair, Don Christie will not be seeking re-election and stepping down in this role at the AGM.  Please join us in holding an awesome farewell and thank you party for Don for his incredible effort as advocate for our businesses and our industry over these 9 years.  We all owe him a debt of gratitude for his tireless work especially in terms of leveling the playing field with Government procurement, in encouraging Government and large NZ businesses to buy from NZ owned companies and for tackling some of the more challenging legislative conditions imposed upon us all over the years.

While Don is not seeking re-election of the Co-Chair role, he has kindly offered to remain as a Board Member.
