Benefits of NZSTA Membership

Ngā painga o te Noho Mema ki NZSTA


NZSTA offer a number of services that are only available to member boards.

NZSTA membership benefits include a subscription to our monthly membership magazine STAnews, NZSTA regional newsletters published each term, Member-only memos, resources and publications and the opportunity to attend the NZSTA annual conference.

Members also directly benefit from being a critical part of a strong, national organisation which gets its strength from a large collective membership. It is this collective power which enables NZSTA to be a vital part of all relevant education related decisions and in national policy formulation. It is NZSTA’s strong membership base that allows NZSTA to seek and obtain its "free to board" contracted services.

Membership of NZSTA is open to school boards of trustees by annual subscription, payable by 31 March each year. A proforma invoice is forwarded to all school boards, along with an open letter to all trustees in November each year.

If your board is not a current NZSTA member, enquire about joining NZSTA today.

Recognition of Service Certificates

We believe there are a large number of trustees on member boards who have been quietly getting on with business. We would like to see that service recognised.

NZSTA recognises the valuable contribution of long-serving trustees of member boards with the following certificates:

  • Acknowledgement of Service - granted for five to nine years' service
  • Long Service Award - granted for ten to twenty years' service, and
  • Recognition of Contribution - twenty-one years' service and over
