NZGS Branches and Groups

NZGS operates around New Zealand through our Regional Branches and national Technical Groups. Regional Branches bring together members in specific areas and organise events in their region. Technical Groups bring together specialists in sub-disciplines for more in-depth technical knowledge sharing. Both are run by enthusiastic volunteers.
