Join Us

We are only as strong as our membership base. As an association we are dedicated to ensuring Democracy, Responsibility, Accountability, and Transparency (DRAT) at the Hamilton City Council. If you also hold these views, we encourage you to join a movement for change and help us keep Hamilton City a great place to live. 


The Hamilton Residents and Ratepayers Association (HRRA) is a not-for-profit organisation, run entirely by volunteers. Our accounts are fully TRANSPARENT and available upon request to all members. Donations can be made to the organisation for specific campaigns, and any contribution made by way of personal cheque; credited to our account directly at bank, or through internet banking.

The one action that we can all take, which will have the biggest impact, is Voting. The Council has to consult with Hamilton residents and ratepayers at certain stages between elections, but they are not bound by what we have to say. The HRRA, therefore, takes the view that the best action we can take to ensure Accountability, Responsibility, Transparency, and Democracy on Council is to stay informed and VOTE.


You can make a difference and we would welcome your contribution. Help us keep Hamilton as one of the greatest little cities to live, in the world. Our strength is found in the time and effort of our members. We will always value your expertise and efforts; from assisting in our committees, to providing time to assist in running various fundraising activities and campaigns.
