What can you expect as a member?

Members can sign up annually, as individuals, students or affiliates.

We welcome participation from anyone who would like to contribute towards our aims, whatever your specific interests and skills may be. We are also very interested in joining forces with organisations looking for synergies and collaboration.

UNA New Zealand branches run events for members throughout the year, such as conferences, dinners, film nights and speaker events. These are a great way to connect with UN officials, diplomats, politicians and academics, and provide opportunities to be updated about news from the UN and our activities around New Zealand. Meetings are also used to organise upcoming community events. The level of participation is entirely up to you.


Member benefits include:

  • Monthly electronic newsletter full of the latest UN and UNA New Zealand news and events.
  • A copy of the UNA New Zealand annual magazine.
  • Discounted entry into UNA New Zealand events across the country.
  • The opportunity to participate in the UNA New Zealand National Conference and National Council Meetings.
  • The right to nominate for office and to vote at your local UNA New Zealand Branch AGM.
