Introducing Rotorua Group

The Rotorua Group of AAPNZ welcomes all Personal Assistants, Executive Assistants, Office Managers, Administrators, Receptionists, Secretaries, Accounts and Payroll Officers, to come along and be involved in a wide range of opportunities with us. In our busy administrative roles, we work hard to provide a high standard of service and support for our organisations, but we also recognise that we need support too.

Our members come together monthly and hear from guest speakers who cover a wide variety of topics. During these meetings there is always the opportunity to share with each other our experiences, knowledge and skills, while socialising with like- minded professionals (and make new friends in the process!).

Our passion is to help you develop your career and provide you with the tools you need.  Our members receive a monthly newsletter, and are kept up-to-date through the group's Facebook page.

If you are interested in joining or would like to find out more, please contact us.
