As a member…

Your organisation becomes part of a nationwide network of local community-based networking organisations. We encourage member organisations to network with each other across the sector, and support each other’s work.

You can participate in regional and national meetings and training workshops.

You get regular information updates through our email network. You receive our monthly members’ newsletter, Network News and an occasional update broadsheet ‘Transition Times’.

Every second year we hold a full conference open to anyone who wishes to attend. This large event is specific to our sector. In alternate years we hold a small hui for the workers of our organisational members. CNA covers all costs of this hui for one person from each organisation, except transport to the venue. You have the opportunity to meet together at our conference to share information, and network with other members.

Who can join?

We welcome new members of any size. Member organisations are committed to working for social wellbeing, equality and community development in their own communities. Your organisation needs to be a networking non-profit NGO organisation. Your membership also will need to be ratified by our Executive Committee.

Other groups can also join CNA as associate members, for $25+GST. Associate members receive our monthly Network News and can attend our conference, and other meetings we might hold.

We also invite associated networks and individuals to subscribe to Network News.

How do we join?

If your group wants to become a member of Community Networks Aotearoa, please fill out and return this form. We will contact you when we receive your form to talk about how best Community Networks Aotearoa can assist your organisation.

We acknowledge that only local groups know what fits in best with their own activities and goals and with their own communities.
