About Us

The Nelson Tasman Chamber of Commerce is a not-for-profit membership organisation that has been supporting businesses and commercial activity in the region since 1858. We are affiliated to the NZ Chamber of Commerce which is part of the International Chamber of Commerce network.

A key purpose of the Nelson Tasman Chamber of Commerce is help create the best commercial environment in which you can achieve your business goals.

Advocacy and identifying key issues that affect businesses in the region are core roles for the Chamber.  We use our strong positive voice to advocate on behalf of our members and in the interests of the region.  We make submissions to both local and central government on business related issues.

Make sure you have your say by being part of the Chamber. We will be your advocate when you need us and can assist you in overcoming obstacles.

Services available:

  • Lobbying
  • Advocacy
  • Representation to local and central government
  • Economic reporting to business
  • Bringing business people together

Members are encouraged to do business with, and support, other members.  We do not supply our email database but members can have news, events or offers posted on our website or Facebook page free of charge.  Members can also pay to have material included in our e-news or can use the members directory themselves to contact other members (make sure you don’t spam!)  Hosts of Chamber functions are provided with ‘business cards’ of those who attend so they can follow up and thank people for attending.
