AAPNZ Events and COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

As the situation regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic unfolds on a daily basis, please be assured our AAPNZ members are at the forefront of our minds. Every day is changing, with updates from the Prime Minister and The Ministry of Health. 

AAPNZ as an association is changing too and putting in place a range of both Webinars and events online. 

AAPNZ will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and provide regular updates and build our online capacity in order to support our members during the uncertainty over the coming months.

Please do not hesitate to contact me at president@aapnz.org.nz if you have any queries.  Regular updates will be provided to members.

Keep well.

    • 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM (UTC+12:00)
    • WSP Ltd Meeting Room (Opus) Morrison Square

    This meeting is going to be a celebration night, as it is our first face-to-face meeting since February - not the usual cheese and crackers!

    Come to our July meeting and have fun making cards and tags. Get your artistic designing powers going.

    Marloes will have everything prepared to guide us through the process of card and tag making. They will be easy designs so they will be fun to make.

    It is always nice to receive a handmade card, and the personal touch makes the recipient feel more valued. Our monthly speakers and presenters who run seminars for us deserve a special thank you. Tags come in handy for special birthdays or anniversaries.

    This special social meeting is FREE (including all the supplies to make cards and tags) to Nelson Group members. We look forward to seeing you there.
