In 2007, UP merged with successful expat IT network The Wellies (The Wellington IT Expats).
The Wellies was set up in 2006 to assist IT professionals and their families to migrate to and settle in Wellington. In a little under three years the group reached over 550 members, and continues to grow. Around 70% of members are in Wellington, and 30% are preparing to migrate here.
Under the merger, The Wellies will be incorporated under the Unlimited Potential banner with special events catering for the expat community added to UP’s annual event calendar.
The Wellies are represented on the Executive Committee by the Expat Officer.
