The New Zealand Chapter of PMI (PMINZ) is made up of three branches.

Each branch is governed by a branch chair who is also a member of the PMINZ Board of Directors. The branch chairs represent the views of the branch committees to the board and implement board decisions in the regions.

Each branch is governed by the PMINZ constitution and carries out its business complying with PMINZ’s policies and procedures.



Within each branch are sub-branches that act as local representation for PMINZ for its members across the country.
