The Kāpiti Coast Chamber of Commerce provides a collective voice for business in Kāpiti.

We champion and support local business. Our role is to advance our local economy by creating wealth and employment, connecting people and working together to solve local business issues. 

Kāpiti Chamber is a non-profit, independent organisation and part of the nationwide network of 30 chambers in New Zealand. We are one of the most active smaller chambers, run by a volunteer Board of local business owners.   More than 300 members in Kāpiti belong to the Kāpiti Chamber, representing a cross section of the business community from small sole traders through to some of the district’s biggest employers.

We provide a credible voice and advocate for local businesses on key issues, to local and central government, such as the Kāpiti  Airport, roading and rail infrastructure projects.

During Covid lockdown and through the changing levels we have offered business advice and support to the community including free training webinars.

We work alongside local businesses, encouraging and supporting them to succeed.
