Become a Member

A Support Local membership entitles you to much more than the benefit you see on paper.

Support Local is a community of makers – like minded individuals working together to better each other, and the Gippsland Community.

We meet on a monthly basis, at locations all across Gippsland, to not only network and socialise, but to discuss and plan events that can both promote our member’s businesses and benefit the Gippsland Community.

As a member of Support Local you can get as involved as you like – all feedback is welcomed, and we love seeing the skills that our diverse membership base brings.



but don’t worry, it’s not for long! We will be back registering new members very soon!

In the meantime, you can LIKE OUR FACEBOOK PAGE to make sure you know when we open the register again.
