Company Profiles

We last published our summary of who makes up the membership of the NZGS in December 2013. This update (June 2016) shows changes since then.  Some caveats must be noted; not all NZGS members state the organisation with which they are affiliated, so the numbers here do not include these individuals. The data is based on the most recent membership lists, so will not take into account any recent movements of individuals between branches or organisations.  This data should not be taken to show the total number of geo-professionals in each organisation listed, as there will be people who are not NZGS members or for whom we do not know their correct affiliation.
