To join Rural Women New Zealand:

We have branches and groups spread throughout New Zealand. All meet regularly some for social contact and others to discuss or monitor a specific issue, such as landcare. You may want to join an existing branch or get some friends together and start your own group.

Some groups meet in the day, while some operate as dinner groups , enjoying a meal and a glass of wine while listening to an interesting speaker.

We also have Women in Farming / Women in Agribusiness groups that get together for educational / training days, speakers on farming-related issues, field days etc (See the Women in Farming and the Calendar sections of this website).

People are also welcome to join as individual members and will receive newsletters and the benefits of membership without belonging to a specific group or branch.

Our subscription fee is only $35.00 per year (for 2010) to join a RWNZ branch. Alternatively, you can join as an individual member for $35.00 per year.
