Our members sit at an intersect where systemic issues are played out locally. The theme ‘Showing Community Leadership’ will explore how our members can and are positioning themselves as leaders within their communities and some of the key trends that will define our sector in the future.

The hui has been designed and will be delivered in partnership with the Akina Foundation combining our two-day hui with the one-day Aotearoa Social Enterprise Forum on the Friday of the same week. The synergy and the flow between the two events will create a greater opportunity and a greater experience for our wider networks and the people we support.

Three years in, we’ve decided that the hui deserved it’s own website, so head over to https://www.communityenterprise.org.nz/ to register and check out the programme.
