Home Auckland Branch of the NZCFS

Auckland Branch of the NZCFS


In New Zealand’s biggest and most racially diverse city, we are uniquely positioned to build on the Society’s mission, continually building sister-city links with Chinese cities. Our Auckland branch does this by mostly focusing on arts, technology, business, and networking. We collaborate and sometimes co-host functions and events with other Chinese associations and groups in Auckland.

Come to one of our events – held every two months. Get notified of the many Dinners and get-togethers held at the Ellen Melville Centre (Members and donors) are notified via email or social media as they are scheduled.
