IT Professionals New Zealand

ITP Regions and Branches


IT Professionals New Zealand is a nationwide organisation with branches throughout the country.

ITP's local activities are divided into three Regions, each with city-based branches:

  • Northern Region: Top half of the North Island (Taupo north), including branches in Auckland, Hamilton and Tauranga
  • Central Region: Bottom half of the North Island, including a branch in Wellington and activities in Whanganui and Hawkes Bay
  • Southern Region: All of the South Island, including branches in Christchurch, Dunedin and Nelson

Each branch coordinates a range of local events, furthers the organisation's interests in their region, provides valuable feedback through to the national organisation, and helps ensure we maintain a nationwide agenda.
