An exciting opportunity to represent business in Otago and Southland

Nominations are now open for eight places on the Board of Business South, your new southern business association.

We’re seeking applications from across the region, encouraging a diverse group of dynamic, high-calibre candidates to represent the southern business community, and to help chart a path for Business South that is future-focused, sustainable and aspirational.
