Associate Corporates


Associate corporates are sister agencies within New Zealand’s private and public sectors that are in sympathy with the raison d’etre of EDNZ – ‘To support, empower and enable economic development practitioners within NZ’


The following specific benefits are available to  Associate corporate members:

  • Access to thousands of individuals working within economic development interested in the latest job vacancies
  • Between one and five individual memberships depending upon the size of the organisation (see proposed fee structure below)
  • The right to one vote for each of the one to five members the organisation possesses at any ballot undertaken by EDNZ
  • A corporate presence on the EDNZ website
  • The opportunity to have input into the shape of the EDNZ research programme
  • The opportunity to engage ‘certified’ practitioners who have an exemplary level of skills, expertise and knowledge in their chosen field of economic development and are committed to ongoing professional development
  • An annual conference with a bespoke designed stream that reflects the issues and preoccupations of corporate members
  • The use of the EDNZ logo in economic development material – this would be on the basis of EDNZ adopting an all care but no responsibility for the activities of its respective corporate members
  • Discounted Professional Development fees
  • Ability to nominate one person for Board membership
