Kaitaia Business Association is a registered Incorporated Society made up of local businesses. It's a 'not for profit' volunteer group which benefits local businesses and the wider community by driving projects.

The principal objective of the Association is to promote industry and commerce in Kaitaia and the surrounding areas through the following:

  • Education: increasing the skills of its members through business training.
  • Cooperation: supporting the efforts of other community groups on behalf of members.
  • Communication: keeping members informed of the organisation and other relevant Northland information.
  • Promotion: engaging in promotion of Kaitaia and surrounding areas to increase economic growth.
  • Aggregation: working together as a group rather than as individuals to benefit members.
  • Socialisation: facilitating networking opportunities for members.
  • In general: all acts, matters or things relating to the welfare and advancement of the members of the Association and the wider Kaitaia community.

Projects recently or currently initiated in conjunction with the Business Improvement District (BID) project can be found on our BID page.
