Our Welcoming Communities Advisory Groups

Our Welcoming Communities Advisory groups are made up of a diverse mix of passionate people living across the Queenstown Lakes District community. They meet once a month on a voluntary basis and provide leadership and advice on the development of the Welcome Plan 2023-2026 and the delivery of our programme of activities.

Get to know those selected for the groups in the Whakatipu. Please note the Upper Clutha group is currently being formed and profiles will be shared early in the new year.

Please see the draft Terms of Reference (PDF, 247KB) – to be finalised by the Advisory Group in October.
