We are a voluntary trade organisation of like-minded hospitality businesses and operators that is governed by a Board of nine elected members. Hospitality NZ owned by its members that supports members to become actively involved at all levels of the organisation.
Let's start at the beginning
We've come a long way from 1902 and while Hospitality New Zealand has a rich heritage in this industry we are committed to meet and deliver on the needs of our members today!
The National Board comprises a President, Vice President, Treasurer and six Board members. They are elected by the voting delegates of the 20 Branches at the National Annual General Meeting, normally held towards the end of September. Each Branch carries votes based on the number of members in their branch on the following formula: Up to and including 40 members - four votes. For each additional 20 members or part thereof an additional one vote.
Members are encouraged to contact the National President, Clare Davies at firstname.lastname@example.org
with regards to any suggestions, ideas or concerns for the Board to consider.
