Tauranga Group

About Tauranga

Tauranga is the largest city in the Bay of Plenty and one of the fastest growing population centres in the country. It is also just a 15 minute drive from one of New Zealand's most popular beach towns, Mount Maunganui.

Downtown Tauranga has several historically significant areas to view during a scenic walk around the area. The Strand waterfront area has undergone a major redevelopment in the past few years, and is home to a number of cafés, restaurants, pubs and nightclubs, as well as a range of accommodation options.

Tauranga’s harbour is in evidence almost everywhere you go, providing the urban area with an attractive waterfront setting. Fishing, sailing, diving and dolphin tours are easy to arrange, or check out one of the local beauty spots – McLaren Falls or the Kaimai Mamaku Forest Park.

Introducing Tauranga Group

The Tauranga 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 sparodically to 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 an e- newsletter from the national President, 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.
