Advertising and Sponsorship

The New Zealand Geotechnical Society is a not-for-profit organisation which relies on membership subscriptions, course fees and sponsorship.  We welcome all offers of sponsorship for specific events or publications as long as they don’t reduce our independence or imply favoratism to specific organisations.

Use of the NZGS logo in advertising material (even by members of the NZGS) is not allowed without pre-approval of the NZGS committee

NZ Geomechanics News

NZ Geomechanics News is published twice a year and distributed to the Society’s 1000 plus members throughout New Zealand and overseas. The magazine is issued to society members who comprise professional geotechnical and civil engineers and engineering geologists from a wide range of consulting, contracting and university organisations, as well as those involved in laboratory and instrumentation services. NZGS aims to break even on publication, and is grateful for the support of advertisers in making the publication possible.

If you are interested in advertising in the next issue of NZ Geomechanics News please contact our management secretary Teresa Roetman.
