Our Values:

One Team

Our people are our greatest asset; we have a fantastic group of staff, members, volunteers, and management on board, whose capability is continually growing, and a great sense of pride is rightfully forming. Our people align with what the Society stands for, and as we grow our story, this part of our culture will become even more important.

Our Society staff come from a broad range of disciplines and are the visionaries behind some of the most successful events in New Zealand, each bringing their extensive experience and knowledge to help the Society. Working hand in hand with the Board, the Society’s Leadership Team is responsible for leading key daily functions within the Society, regarding Society operations, projects and organisational decisions.
