How We Process Applications
- We'll write confirming your application, and give you an indication of when the NZIQS Board will consider your application.
- Student-Studying applications are approved by our office, usually within 2 weeks.
- The NZIQS Membership Committee meets at least every 8 weeks to consider applications and decide which membership category to recommend for approval by the Board.
- You will be notified of their decision shortly after their meeting.
- When you have paid your subscription we will send you a membership certificate
If you're applying for a full membership MNZIQS, you will be contacted to attend a MNZIQS interview conducted by a panel from your local branch.
Once your membership has been accepted you will receive an invoice for the membership category fee, pro rated for the remaining financial year (to 31 March).
Current members need to have paid their subscriptions before they can apply for any upgrade of membership and will be invoiced for the additional membership category fee pro-rated for the months remaining of the current financial year (to 31 March).
