The Hastings Business Women's Network (HBWN) is a not-for-profit organisation operated entirely on voluntary basis. Any surplus revenue is invested back into the local community.

Although fundraising is not our core function, as a network we have raised funds for the local community through percentage of ticket sales at dedicated community events, raffles and auctions with prizes kindly donated by our sponsors and supporters, and direct donations. Some of our charities include:

  • Port Macquarie Hastings Domestic and Family Violence Specialist Service
  • REAP Port Macquarie
  • Hastings Education Fund
  • If We All Had Wings

Business Community

The HBWN has a proud 18 year history as an integral part of the broader Hastings business community and works closely with a number of other networks in the region.

Hastings Business Enterprise Network

The Hastings Business Enterprise Network (HBEN) is a business unit of the Port Macquarie Chamber of Commerce, established by the community to assist free enterprise. Fellow members share their abilities and skills, provide input and solutions to your business situation based on their own experiences and generally provide a positive mentoring environment.
