NZACA Membership Types

The NZACA offers two types of memberships to those working in or associated with the aged residential care sector:

Affiliate Membership

Affiliate membership is available to people associated with the industry, but not eligible for full membership and entitles the member to all benefits except the right to vote at the elections.

Affiliate membership benefits:

  • Representation: NZACA effectively advocate for members' interests and for quality care of the elderly. A vibrant growing industry creates opportunities for all.
  • Communication: NZACA sends all members weekly updates via our In Touch newsletter, and Excellence in Care, our quarterly magazine provides more detailed reports. Affiliate members are offered reduced advertising rates.
  • Networking: Affiliate membership of the Association provides the opportunity to be in contact with those in the industry through local area meetings, seminars and conference. Regular newsletters and weekly emails provide current information on relevant issues.
  • Annual Conference: Each year the organisation holds a conference focused on providing interesting and topical speakers on business and clinical sessions. A comprehensive trade area also provides the latest information on products and services to the sector. Member's registration fee is discounted and members receive a discount if they elect to have a trade display. All the latest details on our next conference can be found in the Conference Section.
    • Advertising: Affiliate members receive reduced rates for advertising in our In Touch and Excellence in Care publications. They are also able to attend our annual conference as a delegate or exhibitor for a reduced rate.
