Building a Team to Build Your Business
13 September | Westpac Stadium Wellington
Our members are the best in the business and stand for quality – quality businesses, quality workmanship and quality teams.

Today’s building environment has both opportunities and challenges. Your ability to make the most of the opportunities and rise to the challenges largely depends on the quality of your people and your teams.  

This year’s Members Conference is about building (and keeping) great teams.  We will cover everything from finding and retaining staff, motivating them, and looking after their (and your) wellbeing. You will also hear from Hazelton Law about the new contracts. The day will conclude with a gala dinner and a special guest speaker.

Following on from Constructive 2019, this is a day for our members that you will not want to miss.
