Community Award

The ACE New Zealand Community Award showcases outstanding input into the community. In their daily work, consultants actively and positively shape the future of Aotearoa by creating sustainable value for themselves, their client and communities. However, real success comes when consultant, client, and community work together seamlessly to find solutions which deliver community-centred outcomes.
