Wellington Branch - Interest Group

Mike Cole

Wellington is facing enormous challenges, including our place beside a powerful Auckland which is doing a good job of attracting the “best and brightest” along with a 'rebuilding' Christchurch which still has a reasonable amount of central Government's attention.  The recent earthquake has also highlighted issues that have to be dealt to.
As a collective voice and with collaboration, we can encourage creativity by all - owners, developers, the public and local / central government - to rejuvenate our creative capital. We need to encourage exceptional thinking to make the region more vibrant and alive.
I have taken on the role of Branch President with the determination that Wellington needs to 'up its game' to retain our existing population, grow and demonstrate to others that our region is a viable place to come to live, work and play.
Your Wellington Branch is taking leadership to encourage and support ideas that will help bring the city alive again - for the benefit of us all – including future generations.
We can't rest on our laurels - they've been squashed. As a Branch, we're effecting change through our advocacy, event programme, media work and collaboration with like-minded organisations, but we need your support. We are working on issues that will help strengthen Wellington for a much stronger future
Get involved!
