Our People

We are passionate about the hospitality industry and take our role seriously to help our members when faced with business issues that we can help with.

We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for our members and between our eight Regional Managers we have a fountain of industry knowledge and experience that are unique to this organisation.

The National Board and Branch Presidents have been elected by the members on their merits and contribution to the industry and their communities. See the National Board and Branch Presidents below to find out who is representing your region on local industry issues. For further details including postal addresses click the "Meet..." link.

Media Enquiries
All enquiries are to be directed to Rachael Shadbolt, GM Accommodation, Partnerships & Communications on 027 536 8045 in the first instance.
