  1. To promote the North Harbour region.
  2. For business establishments of the region to meet and network for the good of the region.
  3. To form a Charitable Trust to raise funds and present scholarships to the youth of the North Harbour region.

 North Harbour Club Ambassador Cam Calkoen's First Speech

Watch it here!

With the presentation of awards worth over $110,000 in 2012, the North Harbour Club has now awarded over $1.4 million worth of AIMES Awards to the young people of our fantastic region since 1995. The club’s founders, members, sponsors and supporters should all be very proud.

The North Harbour Club is an association of Auckland’s North Harbour/Shore leaders in local affairs, business, education, sport and social development. Members of the club, who are all residents or have their businesses in the North Harbour area, have, among other stated aims, the desire to promote excellence by encouraging and providing financial assistance to the young people of the North Harbour region who have significant ability in their chosen field and display personal characteristics which make them worthy of our support.

The annual AIMES Awards are the highest-profile face of the North Harbour Club, but the objectives are five-fold:

  1. To establish and maintain a club of non-political character for Members to meet through regular lunches and social activities.

  2. To establish a charitable trust, known as The North Harbour Club Charitable Trust, to promote and develop local talent in the fields covered by the AIMES Awards.

  3. To support cultural, sporting and recreational activities in the region.

  4. To foster a spirit of pride in the region.

  5. To foster a ‘good neighbour’ and ‘good citizen’ ethos in the region.

Membership of the North Harbour Club returns benefits to Members as well as the youth the Club chooses to reward. A series of luncheons throughout the year, each with a high-quality guest speaker, are calendar highlights, allowing Members to mix and mingle while enjoying good food and fine wine. In this way Members receive an opportunity to meet each other, entertain clients and help our outstanding young achievers advance their careers at the same time.
