PRINZ member benefits card


PRINZ started off as an opportunity for me to network with professional colleagues and meet others in our profession. Now it is much more! It provides me opportunities to stay current in our continual changing profession, challenges me to keep my annual practice certificate, allows me to share my skills and mentor others and still allows me to be connected with those who join our profession. Fiona Cassidy, Consultant, F R Consulting, PRINZ Fellow and former President
The thing I value most about my PRINZ membership has been the opportunities PRINZ provides for members to grow as professionals, in particular the ability for members to network, exchange thoughts and ideas, and work together for the betterment of the profession. Heather Claycomb, HMC Communications, PRINZ Member and National Council member in the Waikato region
Membership of PRINZ alone is not a benefit in itself. It's the involvement in PRINZ and taking advantage of every opportunity provided by PRINZ that provides the benefit. I always want to keep learning, developing and keeping on top of the latest trends in the industry - there's no other organisation in NZ that can offer what I need other than PRINZ. Graeme Purches, PRINZ Fellow and former President
