CEO Welcome

matt lunn 001A warm welcome to NGIWA.

With over 75 years of servicing the WA nursery industry, NGIWA is now firmly considered the peak body for horticulture in this state.

Our membership covers a diverse group of practicing horticulturists from both the retail and grower sectors as well as a number of prominent allied businesses that support our garden centres and nurserymen.

Belonging to a professional association has been a valuable part of my 30-year career, and the value to an individual or a business cannot be underestimated.

NGIWA provides more than just an annual fee. We deliver a variety of professional training workshops not only for the director but the apprentice. We also coordinate a variety of programs that credits and monitors your establishment and in doing so allows you to attract future business. But above all, we deliver one key ingredient -fellowship!

During my journey I have met a variety of professionals in our industry and it is partly due to this, that I am privileged to be the CEO of NGIWA.

I have gained through networking, a valuable insight into the workings of all fields of horticulture in our state and received considerable knowledge from like-minded individuals through long term friendships, but most importantly the personal support I have received from fellow horticulturists has given me the right tools in which to grow my career.

I therefore, not only look forward to meeting you personally but thank you for being a member of NGIWA and allowing us to be part of your journey.
