NZGFA Membership

NZGFA Membership:

Becoming a member of the NZGFA is recommended to all individuals and companies involved in the groundspread fertiliser industry.

Belonging to a trade organisation that has your best interests, and those of your industry, at heart means that you can be assured that issues affecting groundspreading businesses will be assessed and managed by the NZGFA national council.

If you wish to raise an industry matter, you can have your say – and be heard – via your regional branch.

Joining the NZGFA also provides you and your team with an opportunity to participate in the camaraderie of the groundspread industry as well as network with others in the profession. You can do this at your own regional NZFGA group meetings as well as on a national level at the NZGFA annual conference.
