Membership during lockdown

Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga members are our financial and moral lifeblood and your support of our work through membership and donations is crucial.  Now, more than ever, we need your support and understanding.

As you might expect at Alert Level 4, the membership team is working from home so processing time for standard membership (new and renewing), magazine-only subscriptions and donations at this time may be a little slower than usual.  We regret that we cannot post cards and other materials to you until we are back in the office.  Mail delivery is also affected by the country's response to Covid-19 with restricting mail to essential services during lockdown.

Soft copies of many of our publications are available in the Resources section of our website. 

If you have not provided us with your email address or signed up to our monthly newsletter Heritage this Month, please just email our Membership Advisor on membership@heritage.org.nz to securely provide your name and email address.  Read our Privacy Policy.
