We have 15 branches nationwide organising locally run meetings and events, which may be networking events, seminars, Special Interest Groups (SIGs) or HR Café Connects. 

HR Café Connects are for HRNZ members only.  These complimentary catch ups are an opportunity to network with fellow HR practitioners for some collegiality, problem solving, and access to ideas and professional networking. A great way to build relationships and make connections with other local HR members. 

Our ever popular Branch Events provide members with the opportunity to network with fellow presenters, share best practice and learn from informative relevant presentations. Members are welcome to attend any branch events across the country.

Non-members are welcome to attend events at the non member rate. Some events may be restricted to Members Only.

Interested in joining a Branch Committee?

Branches are an important and integral part of the HRNZ Community. It is acknowledged that Branch Presidents and Committee Members are a group of dedicated volunteers who are passionate about elevating the capability and reputation of the HR profession.  They support their members by regularly organising events and introducing guest speakers along including Special Interest Groups (SIGS), Networking, and Café Connects events. 

Their aim is to educate, inform, equip and inspire our members to conduct their roles competently, and with confidence. Being a part of a HRNZ Branch Committee is a great way to broaden your network, pick up additional skills or strengthen existing ones, and influence the profession. Serving on a Branch Committee will boost your profile both locally and nationally. Furthermore you will build a valuable support network of leading industry professionals. You must be a current HRNZ Financial Member to serve on a Branch Committee.

Please feel free to make contact directly with your local Branch President. HRNZ will also email for Expressions of Interest in November each year.
