Women in Business hosted a successful lunch to start 2015 on Wednesday 25 February. Suzanne Snively was asked to speak on the serious social topic of domestic violence & workplace productivity. Suzanne is a local Kapiti resident and she was a co-author of report commissioned by the PSA - Productivity Gains from Workplace Protection of Victims of Domestic Violence.
Sixty-five percent of respondents to a Chamber of Commerce online survey gave full or qualified support to the local government amalgamation proposals as proposed prior to Christmas by the Local Government Commission. A further 10%, while not supporting the existing proposal, supported an alternative model for change.
The Kapiti Coast Chamber of Commerce welcomes the release of the Local Government Commission Proposal for amalgamation in Wellington. “This proposal has been a long time coming. It is time to engage in a fully informed debate so as to bring about a resolution which will create greater certainty for businesses” says Chair of the Chamber, Liz Koh. “We will be endeavouring to provide objective information to our members that is not clouded by vested interest so they can confidently determine what is in the best interests of Kapiti” says Koh.
