Te Kawarangi


The Nelson Group of AAPNZ was established in 1991 and represents administrative professionals (personal assistants, executive assistants, office managers, receptionists, secretaries, accounts clerks, and administrators) in the Nelson/Tasman region.  Members in Nelson Group represent a wide range of industries including law firms, education, local government, accounting, engineering, travel, etc.

Administrators in any industry, whether self-employed or working for someone else, will benefit from the ongoing training, upskilling and education that Nelson Group offers.  Nelson Group hosts an annual workshop, monthly group meetings, and monthly social luncheons.  Many of our members state that networking with other administrators is another important benefit to members.  When a member has a question, one of our members will often be able to answer it whether it is a software problem, an educational opportunity or a grammar query.   


Members receive a monthly group newsletter, Nelson Notes, which is emailed before each meeting, providing details of guest speaker and venue.  The newsletter also includes grammar and skill tips, a report about the previous month's meeting, relevant articles, and information about AAPNZ both locally and nationally.

Our current and previous newsletters are listed below:
